D.C. Sierra Club has made three early endorsements in the April 1 primary.
The D.C. Chapter of the Sierra Club is pleased to announce early endorsements in three races for the D.C. Council.
Council Chairman: Phil Mendelson
Phil Mendelson has been an outstanding ally in protecting the environment. He has been our champion time after time.
Council Ward 1: Jim Graham
Jim Graham has been a consistent supporter with a 100% voting record. We know we can count on him.
Council Ward 3: Mary Cheh
Mary Cheh has been instrumental in the introduction and passage of numerous environmental bills and moving them through the Council. She is the Chair of the Committee on Transportation and Environment.
Early endorsements, by National Sierra Club rules, are only given to incumbents who have been endorsed before and have good voting records on environmental rules. Each candidate must receive a 2/3rds super majority vote from both the Political Committee and the Executive Board o be endorsed.
The D.C. Sierra Club will make endorsements in other council races and the mayoral race in coming weeks.
