WASHINGTON, D.C. – On October 23, Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) participated as a guest speaker at the 6th annual Sustainable Business & Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., hosted by the American Sustainable Business Council.
Friedman spoke on a panel focused on the role of business in creating policy change at the state level. She was joined by former Massachusetts state Senator Dan Wolf (D-Harwich), David Fraser-Hidalgo from the Maryland House of Delegates and Mike Mielke, SVP of Energy & Environment at Silicon Valley Leadership Group.
On the panel, Friedman explained, “As a former high-tech executive, I think it is critically important for progressive businesspeople to stand up and speak out. Otherwise, the business owners’ voice in the debate is completely dominated by the usual corporate voices.”
