Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Haley Stevens for Congress in Michigan’s 11th District.
“Haley Stevens knows firsthand from helping save Michigan’s auto industry by building cleaner cars just how reducing pollution and growing our economy can go hand in hand,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “She will never stop fighting for Michigan families and will work tirelessly to create more good-paying clean energy jobs. We need that kind of common sense leadership in Washington and that is why we are proud to endorse her campaign.”
“Haley Stevens is committed to ensuring that Michigan communities receive the funding and support that they need to protect our Great Lakes,” said Michigan League of Conservation Voters Executive Director Lisa Wozniak. “We are confident that she will be a strong ally in Congress in the fight for clean air and safe drinking water for all.”
“As Chief of Staff on the Auto Rescue, I saw firsthand how we can save Michigan jobs while protecting our environment,” said Haley Stevens. “I believe we can continue to create good-paying jobs right here in America while growing our clean energy economy, and the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund works every day to make that possible. That’s why I’m honored to have their support in my campaign for U.S Congress.”
Haley Stevens was born and raised in Oakland County and has dedicated her career to saving and growing good-paying jobs in Michigan. During the Great Recession, Haley served as chief of staff on the Auto Task Force inside of the U.S. Treasury Department, the team responsible for returning the auto industry to financial stability and saving 211,000 Michigan jobs. Most recently, she led a national workforce development program and created the country’s first online training program for digital manufacturing. Earlier in her career, Haley played a key role in setting up two federal offices critical in creating new Michigan jobs: The Office of Recovery for Automotive Communities and Workers, and the White House Office for Manufacturing Policy. In Congress, Stevens will focus on protecting Michigan’s clean air, water and lands, and investing in growing the clean energy economy.
