WHAT’S A PLACE YOU LOVE IN THE MIDWEST?

There’s a bike trail running along the Rock River in Northern Illinois. I grew up riding that trail, and will do what I can to protect it.

WHAT DRIVES YOU TO DO THIS WORK?

I’m from a former factory town. The factories left. The environmental damage they did remains. Clean energy jobs can put hurting Midwest communities to work in a sustainable, healthier way.
