Haley Stevens is a strong supporter of clean air and safe drinking water for all.
Stevens has dedicated her career to saving and growing jobs in Michigan. During the Great Recession, Haley served in the U.S. Treasury Department as the Chief of Staff for the Auto Task Force, the team responsible for returning the auto industry to financial stability and saving 211,000 jobs in Michigan. During her tenure, she worked on behalf of policies that helped to reduce carbon emissions and to support clean energy. Most recently, she led a national workforce development program and created the country’s first online training course 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.
As a representative, Stevens will focus on protecting Michigan’s clean air, water and lands, and work to grow the clean energy economy. She will be an advocate for the EPA and fight for policies that help to address climate change.
Stevens joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of retiring Representative David Trott, who earned a 4% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“As Chief of Staff on the Auto Rescue, I saw firsthand how we can save Michigan jobs while protecting our environment. I believe we can continue to create good-paying jobs right here in America while growing our clean energy economy.”
