MADISON – Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters proudly endorses Tony Evers for governor.

“Tony Evers will protect Wisconsin’s environment and public health,” Executive Director Kerry Schumann said. “Tony is committed to clean water, fresh air, healthy kids, and preserving the places where we hunt, hike, and make memories with our families.”

metallic-sulfide-mining-runoffFor years, the Walker Administration has set policy and signed laws that have damaged Wisconsin’s air, poisoned its drinking water, and rolled back protections over its public lands and wildlife.

Tony Evers will put a halt to this disastrous anti-conservation agenda and restore Wisconsin’s reputation as a state that cares for its future generations.

"Our lands and natural resources are being auctioned off to the highest bidder, our lakes and streams are disappearing and our wetlands are being destroyed,” Tony Evers said. “Too often, our drinking water is unsafe, making our kids sick. We must restore balance and common sense to our natural resources management.”

Tony Evers adds strength and experience to an already strong pro-conservation ticket.

As lieutenant governor, Mandela Barnes will provide critical leadership on conservation issues from clean drinking water to renewable energy. As attorney general, Josh Kaul will enforce the law against illegal polluters. As state treasurer, Sarah Godlewski will protect public lands and restore dignity and function to the office.

“This fall, Wisconsin has a group of incredible candidates – led by Tony Evers – who will work together with intelligence, integrity, and ingenuity toward a better future for our families and our environment,” Schumann said.
