This morning the Maryland Sierra Club announced 40 new endorsements for state office and Maryland General Assembly. The endorsements are a mix of incumbents and newcomers.
"This is a critical time for Marylanders to elect leaders who will make environment and public health top priorities. We need elected officials who understand the threat that climate change poses to Maryland. We need leaders who believe that all Marylanders have the right to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities." said Josh Tulkin, Director of the Maryland Sierra Club.
"We do the hard work of identifying the best environmental candidates, and we are proud of these endorsements," said Betsy Johnson, Political Chair for the Maryland Chapter of The Sierra Club.
For District 17 Delegate, the Maryland Sierra Club endorsed Delegate Kumar Barve, Delegate Jim Gilchrist, and Julie Palakovich Carr.
