The Chapter endorsed 24 candidates and 21 made it to the November general election this fall.
This spring the Chapter’s Political Action Committee (PAC) mailed questionnaires to all candidates for office. We received 53 responses. The Committee met in March to evaluate the candidates and make endorsements for the primary. Of the 24 candidates we endorsed, 21 made it to the general election. For a list of those selected, along with a scorecard summarizing environmental votes taken in the Senate during the79th Legislature, please go to the Chapter’s website.
Stay tuned for further endorsements before the November 2 general election. Those endorsements will be posted at westvirginia.sierraclub.org as well as in the September-October issue of this newsletter.
Later this summer you will be receiving a solicitation for contributions to the WV Chapter PAC. Our support is very important to the candidates who are fighting the uphill battle for clean air and clean water, so please be as generous as possible.
