Check out this list for Sierra Club-endorsed Candidates for the 2006 general election

The following are the WV Chapter endorsements for the general election on Tuesday, November 7.  Your Political Committee has focused on state races this year because there are several initiatives such as Clean Elections, The Bottle Bill and Sludge Safety legislation that are inching ever closer.  A few more members supporting Sierra Club values can put us over the top on these important priorities

As you know, WV Sierra Club’s two major campaigns are to Stop Mountaintop Removal and to increase designation of wilderness areas in West Virginia. Recently we’ve gained lots of favorable publicity for our Stop Mountaintop Removal campaign and our effort to increase wilderness areas but we need to strengthen our support at the state and federal levels.  If we come out and vote as a bloc, we can improve our support in the state in 2006 and be ready for 2008 when we will go for increased national support.
