The government has been doling out too much money in subsidies that being used for old technologies that are not helping us secure sustainable and reliable energy. Since its inception in 1994, the Green Scissors Campaign has fought to make environmental and fiscal responsibility priorities in Washington. The campaign seeks to eliminate subsidies and programs that harm the environment and waste taxpayer dollars. By making these cuts, the federal government can save money for priorities including deficit reduction. ConservAmerica has partnered with The Green Scissors Campaign to help educate and provide outreach for this initiative.
Prior to joining ConservAmerica, Rob Sisson spent 22 years in commercial banking. In 2000, he was named Michigan’s Small Business Advocate of the Year. He served two terms as Mayor of the City of Sturgis, MI. During his tenure, he helped lead the city to national recognition for energy and environmental conservation programs (saving tax dollars). A hallmark of his administration was the work to privatize city services including the city owned ambulance service and hospital. He led the effort to lower the city’s tax rate to the lowest level since 1950. For his efforts in expense reduction via conservation programs, he was named Michigan’s Environmental Leader of 2008. Sisson is the author of two books: Financing the Small Business (Adams Media Inc) and The Legend of Chief White Pigeon and the Old Sauk Trail. Active in economic development, Rob served twice as president of the St. Joseph County EDC/Brownfield corporations and is long time VP of the Sturgis EDC/Brownfield corporations. He is a strong supporter of the entrepreneurial spirit. He is a member of Right to Life, NRA, and the Chamber of Commerce. Rob hunts, fly fishes, and hikes in Michigan and the northern Rockies.
