Today, Jen signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge, proudly affirming that she will not accept money from oil, gas, or coal industries.
Climate change is undeniably one of the most important issues of our time. It is also one of the driving reasons Jen decided to run for office, recognizing that state-level offices are well positioned to support the transition to renewable energy, strengthen local environmental protections, and invest in infrastructure built for a changed (and changing) climate.
Minnesota is one of the fastest-warming states in the nation, and the threats we face include hazards such as increased extreme heat, extreme rainfall, and humidity. These hazards will impact water supply, roads and bridges, public health, our environment, and more.
Jen has actively led on reducing green house gas emissions and preparing our communities for climate impacts for more than ten years. Something as far-reaching as climate change requires intentional focus – focus Jen will bring to the legislature as a champion of environmental policies.
