Aug 17, 2022

MADISON – Wisconsin Conservation Voters is proud to announce its final round of endorsements for the November election. This third and final endorsement round completes Wisconsin Conservation Voters’ endorsement process for the November 2022 Election cycle.

“This November, our environment and democracy are on the line,” said Executive Director Kerry Schumann. “Whoever wins the Governor’s race and takes control of the state legislature will determine if our state can make progress on clean water, clean energy, and democracy issues – or if we go backwards. We need to elect conservation champions up and down the ballot, in all corners of the state. With the climate crisis, there isn’t any time to spare – we’re getting to work to elect these candidates now.”

“We are proud to support these candidates,” said Seth Hoffmeister, Deputy Director. “We endorsed these candidates because all of these offices are critical for keeping our state on track to a brighter, healthier future – and these candidates are the best people for the job. These candidates weren’t selected in back-room deals – they’re folks who picked up the challenge to change Wisconsin for the better. These candidates are our neighbors, our friends, and our family. They care deeply about the issues that matter most to conservation voters – clean energy, addressing the climate crisis, protecting our freedom to vote, and clean, safe drinking water. It’s our highest priority – for all of our communities and for our children’s future – to elect these candidates in November.”
