Sierra Club Endorsements

March 3, 2020 Primary Election

Sierra Club San Diego’s Political Committee made a number of important endorsements. The committee evaluated past environmental records of candidates, completed questionnaires and interviews in making these endorsements

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.
