Lori Trahan is a dedicated public servant and business leader who believes clean air and clean water are fundamental human rights.
Born and raised in Lowell, Massachusetts, Trahan is a graduate of Georgetown University and Harvard Business School who has extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, which has given her a clear-eyed understanding of the severity of the challenges we face. Trahan was a senior executive at ChoiceStream, a marketing and advertising agency, before becoming CEO of the Concire Institute, a leadership development organization. Before that, she served as the Deputy Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Chief of Staff to former U.S. Representative Marty Meehan.
As a representative, Trahan will push to expand access to cost-saving renewable energy for lowincome households, defend clean air and clean water protections, and support the United States resuming its role as a climate leader. She will work towards comprehensive climate change policies that do not leave any demographic—including communities of color who are disproportionately saddled with high levels of pollution and former mining communities— behind.
Trahan joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of retiring Representative Niki Tsongas, who earned a lifetime score of 95% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“We have a responsibility to protect the planet our children will inherit. I will hold those who sully the environment and pollute the biosphere responsible for their actions, and fight to preserve our greatest natural resource.”
