Cape Air CEO Dan Wolf Endorses Ed Markey for United States Senate
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
HYANNIS — Senator Ed Markey announced today that Cape Air CEO and former State Senator Dan Wolf has endorsed him for re-election to the United States Senate.
“Senator Markey has been a tireless and fearless advocate for the citizens of Massachusetts,” Wolf said. “He has prioritized climate change as a challenge of our generation, but beyond that, he has focused on wealth and income inequality, healthcare, all of the issues that are important, not only to our generation today, but to future generations in the Commonwealth and across the country.”
As CEO of Cape Air, Dan is working to bring the world’s first electric battery-operated commercial airplanes to the Commonwealth. The project, which is expected to be in the air by 2023, is designed by an Israeli company that plans to move production to the United States.
In addition to his role as the leader of Cape Air, Dan has served on the board of organizations including the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, the Association to Preserve Cape Cod, the Center for Coastal Studies, and the Alliance for Business Leadership.
A passionate supporter of environmental causes, Dan Wolf has created multiple public-private partnerships on Cape Cod to address the worsening effects of climate change.
“Dan is a visionary leader,” Senator Markey said. “Cape Air’s initiative to go all-electric will be a model followed all across America and all across the world. He is an environmental leader, and it is my honor to have his support in this race for re-election to the United States Senate.”
Dan served in the Massachusetts State Senate from 2011 to 2016, where he represented the Cape and Islands. Dan was appointed as the Senate Chair of the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development, focusing on legislation around labor, workplace safety and workplace development.
Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate for the last six years, and is widely regarded as the leading member of Congress on environmental issues. He has also led legislation in addressing the opioid epidemic, internet privacy concerns and the humanitarian crisis occurring at the southern border.
