The Michigan League of Conservation Voters is proud to endorse Ned Staebler in his campaign for State House in the 53rd District. Staebler is a Vice-President at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and a former Board member for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters (LCV).

In his vigorous campaign for this seat, Staebler has demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the environmental issues central to the local community and to the state. His prior membership on Michigan LCV's Board is indicative of his long-standing dedication to the protection of Michigan's natural resources. Furthermore, his current work with MEDC serves to add credibility to his campaign's message of of a long-term vision for Michigan and the crucial role that green jobs and innovation will play in it.

Michigan LCV is a non-partisan, non-profit organization which seeks to turn environmental goals into community priorities by electing, educating, and holding officials accountable for their votes and actions

"Ned has a deep commitment to Ann Arbor and Michigan and a strong familiarity with both environmental and green business policy. His thorough understanding of the issues that are most relevant to the fullest protection of this state's beautiful and valuable natural resources will be a great asset in Lansing," said Bob Martel, President of the Michigan LCV Board of Directors. "Michigan LCV is dedicated not only to supporting environmental advocates to the Legislature, but identifying and electing true leaders on the issues; we believe Ned is such a leader."

"I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Michigan League of Conservation Voters," added Staebler. "For years, Michigan LCV has been on the front lines of the fight to protect Michigan’s environment. From invasive species in the Great Lakes to runaway water and air pollution to forging a clean energy future, our state faces a full slate of environmental challenges. It’s incredibly encouraging to have such a strong partner like the MLCV as we craft a strategy to deal with these fundamental issues.”

With the primary election quickly approaching on August 3rd, Michigan LCV is continually evaluating further races for endorsement and supporting those candidates that have already received the organization’s support.
