“…because of your commitment to conservation and your work to ensure clean air, clean water, and healthy communities….”

Columbia, SC—Today, the Conservation Voters of South Carolina voted to endorse Mia McLeod in her bid to succeed Joel Lourie in Senate District 22.

“As a mother, legislator and South Carolinian, it is my responsibility to make sure that our children have pure air to breathe, land to roam, and clean water to drink. The use of clean energy, like solar and wind, is just common sense. Protecting the resources that make South Carolina great is what being a South Carolinian is all about,” said Representative McLeod.

Governed by a Board of Directors that includes Republicans, Democrats and Independents across South Carolina, The Conservation Voters’ mission is to educate South Carolinians and elected officials on the importance of protecting the quality of air, land and water, while working to create a sustainable energy future.

In discussing the endorsement, CVSC Political Director John Tynan explained, “Mia’s leadership and sponsorship of conservation legislation in 2016, including the Conservation Bank Reauthorization bill is one of the many reasons we have chosen to support her campaign.”

Representative McLeod responded, “I am humbled by this endorsement. Conservation voters cut a wide swath across my district and our state. They are Republicans…Democrats…Independents who understand the importance of preserving our natural resources for future generations. Last year and this past weekend, as the water, wind and rain ripped through my district and our state, we were reminded of the symbiotic relationship between people and our environment. Conservation Voters has been the leading voice in bringing all sides to the table so that we can preserve and create a better quality of life for South Carolinians.”
