Saratoga: Today, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) endorsed Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election to Congress. In order to receive CRES’s endorsement, candidates must acknowledge a role for the federal government in reducing America’s carbon emissions and developing a robust clean energy industry, as well as demonstrate leadership on policy initiatives related to climate change and emissions reduction.

“Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has played a key role in advancing the clean energy technologies that have created over 159,000 jobs in New York,” said CRES Executive Director Heather Reams. “During her time in the U.S. House, Congresswoman Stefanik has worked to promote a safe and healthy environment, supported job-creating policies that strengthen our energy economy, and has supported legislation to help North Country farmers in their efforts to reduce carbon emissions. CRES is proud to formally endorse Elise Stefanik for reelection for the U.S. House in New York’s 21st Congressional District.”

“Promoting energy security, affordability and innovation helps grow North Country jobs and protect middle-class families from rising energy costs,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. “I am proud to have earned this endorsement from Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, and will continue working across party lines to support greater energy independence and environmental stewardship across the 21st District.”
