Mattie Hunter recognizes that water is an important natural resource and needs to be protected for future generations. She has supported efforts to protect our communities from the dangers of high-volume hydraulic fracturing (fracking).

Cullerton

Senate President John Cullerton has long been a champion for the environment. During his time in the Senate, Springfield has been the site of several transformational clean energy victories. In less than a decade, we have gone from a state without energy policy (beyond throwing money at dirty coal and nuclear energy) to having some of the most aggressive renewable energy and energy efficiency requirements in the country. These major advances would not have been possible without clean energy champions like President Cullerton.


Illinois Senate 9: Daniel Biss, Democrat
