The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund PAC has endorsed Representative Mike Day of Stoneham in the election for the 31st Middlesex State Representative district, a credit to his commitment to the environment.
“Representative Day is a proven environmental champion,” stated ELM Action Fund Executive Director Joe O’Brien. "He knows that in towns like Stoneham and across the state we need to build a clean energy economy that will power us into the future."
"Representative Day has a long track record of advocating to curb sprawl and increase renewable energy,” said ELM Action Fund President Elizabeth Henry. “He's exactly the kind of leader we need to keep in the State House.”
Representative Day has been a strong advocate for environmental issues throughout his two terms in the Legislature. He understands that protecting our planet and working to combat climate change are of the utmost importance. This session, he was the primary sponsor of legislation to increase access to recycling in the Commonwealth and to require the Energy Facilities Siting Board to prioritize environmental impact when considering new energy infrastructure projects. He is a strong supporter of the Environmental Bond Bill, a $2 billion effort to finance projects to fight climate change and preserve our natural resources and environment. His advocacy resulted in the authorization of $1 million to dredge and protect Winter Pond in the town of Winchester and $1 million to restore and protect the natural resources in the Middlesex Fells Reservation.
“Climate change is real. Global Warming is real," said Representative Day. "We must remain a national leader in the fight against climate change and its potentially devastating effects.”
Representative Day lives in Stoneham with his wife Megan and their three sons, Conor, Ryan, and Finnegan. The Days are active members of their community, where he coaches for Stoneham Youth Hockey and Megan is a member of the Stoneham Conservation Commission. He graduated from Phillips Academy Andover and UMass-Amherst before earning his law degree from Georgetown University, where he attended the night division while working a full-time job in Washington, D.C.
