91. Mary Creasman
Environmental advocate Mary Creasman has been at the head of the California League of Conservation Voters for almost exactly two years as we go to print. The CLCV was formed in 1972 and is probably best known for its annual Environmental Scorecard, described by the group as “the definitive barometer of environmental politics in Sacramento,” which rates the Legislature and the governor on their support of key environmental legislation. Prior to coming on as CEO at the League, Creasman served as the California director of government affairs for The Trust for Public Land. There she led the successful effort to pass Prop. 68, a $4.1 billion bond package to fund a host of environmental priorities. Creasman has a track record of leading campaigns and initiatives at regional, statewide and national levels as the chief strategy officer of Green For All, the associate director of the Partnership for Children & Youth, and the political and organizing director of the AFL-CIO Labor Council in Silicon Valley.
