GREEN BAY, WI -- Kristina Shelton, Democratic candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly District 90, has been endorsed by Wisconsin Conservation Voters. Shelton earned the endorsement against incumbent Democrat Staush Gruszynski who was awarded the endorsement in 2018.

“Kristina’s commitment to climate action, clean water, democracy and voting access, and her commitment to environmental justice make her the clear candidate in this race,” said WCV in a statement.

clean-airWisconsin Conservation Voters is a statewide grassroots nonprofit that has been advocating for clean energy, safe water, environmental justice, and conservation since 2002.

“Wisconsin Conservation Voters is the gold standard of pushing for environmental justice in Wisconsin.” said Shelton. “Since my campaign has prioritized the fight for clean energy and healthy water, and against climate change, I am honored to have earned WCV’s endorsement. I can’t wait to get to work on our shared goals once I’m elected to the Assembly this November.”

Kristina Shelton has laid out a detailed and ambitious policy agenda. Her priorities include funding for infrastructure and environmental resiliency, affordable healthcare for all, and restoring the strength of Wisconsin’s unions.

Her opponent in the Democratic Party primary, Staush Gruszynksi, was asked to step down after sexually harassing a Capitol staffer last October. After refusing to resign, Gruszynksi was removed from the Democratic Assembly Caucus and relieved of his committee assignments. This means that as the Legislature responds to important conservation issues, constituents of the 90th District have no voice.

WCV joins other organizations including Citizen Action of Wisconsin and Democracy for America in endorsing Shelton. The campaign expects to announce more endorsements in the coming weeks.
