The Sierra Club’s List of Candidates that People who Care about Environmental Protection Should Vote For
From Representatives of the Sierra Club in Western New York
Posted November 5th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
(A Brief Foreword by NAL reporter and publisher Doug Draper – Anyone in the United States or Canada or anywhere else in the world who cares about the protecting the environment and the health of our planet, may already know that few other leaders in the Western world have done as much to trash environmental regulations and programs as Donald Trump.
Trump’s war on the environment is one of numerous reasons why it is so important to see people elected to key positions in this Tuesday, November 6th, mid-term elections in the United States who work to stop him before there is nothing healthy to save or pass on to future generations.
So if you are one of our American readers and you are eligible to vote in this Tuesday’s elections, please give consideration to the following list of candidates endorsed by one of North American’s oldest and most respected environmental organizations, the Sierra Club.)
