Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today its endorsement of Jill Schupp for election to the U.S. House from Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Jill Schupp has proven that she will get the job done and work to protect our environment and the health of our communities from her strong service in the Missouri legislature and beyond,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Despite the odds, she has been able to make progress on critical environmental issues and has championed climate action, and we know she will continue the fight in Congress.”
“I am so pleased to have the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund’s endorsement of our campaign for Congress in Missouri’s 2nd district,” said Jill Schupp. “Protecting our clean air, clean water, and combating climate change are some of the most critical challenges we face, which is why I’ve worked hard to be a champion for Missourians on these issues throughout my career. I’m eager to continue this work in Congress, because future generations depend on it.”
Jill Schupp graduated from the University of Missouri in Columbia and earned a master’s degree in teaching at the University of Missouri at St. Louis. Schupp began her career in public service in 2000 when she joined her local school board, then city council in 2007. A year later she won a race for the Missouri House of Representatives, and in 2014 she became a state senator, winning re-election in 2018. During her time in the legislature, she made progress on several environmental issues including CAFOs and two landfills that were partially in her district. One of those landfills was a legacy site from World War II used to dump nuclear waste and she has worked for years alongside local activists to get that site cleaned up. She received a perfect score on the Missouri Sierra Club legislative scorecard.
