Sierra Club Endorsements

November 3, 2020 General Election

Sierra Club San Diego has made a number of important endorsements. The Political and Executive committees evaluated past environmental records of candidates, completed questionnaires and interviews in making these endorsements.  Ballot measures were evaluated to be consistent with our conservation policies.

We urge you to consider the environment when you vote. Only by electing candidates who share the view of the Sierra Club on the importance of the protection of the environment can we make our state the model for the rest of the nation.

Sierra Club San Diego’s tax exemption status – 501(c)(4) – allows us to make endorsements for candidates and ballot measures.
