FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Lori Stone on her election as mayor of Warren, Michigan. EMILYs List Interim President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate Lori Stone on her groundbreaking election as the first woman mayor in Warren, Michigan’s history. She has been a force to be reckoned with in the state House, fighting for public education, government transparency, and Michigan’s working families and small businesses — and we know that she will take that same dedication and tenacity to the mayor’s office and deliver results for the people of Warren.”
State Rep. Lori Stone is finishing her third term in the Michigan House of Representatives and was first endorsed by EMILYs List in 2020. Stone is a lifelong resident of Warren and worked as a school teacher for 14 years. She was inspired to run for office after witnessing firsthand the struggles her local school district faced when obtaining the funding they needed to serve students effectively. In the state House, she has focused on constituent services, accountability, and transparency, and she is committed to bringing those values to Warren’s mayoral office.
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised $850 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure operations for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
