Sierra Club Endorses Alessandra Biaggi
The Sierra Club, the oldest national environmental advocacy organization, has endorsed Alessandra Biaggi for State Senate in the 34th District in the Democratic Primary on Thursday, September 13.
Carl Arnold, chair of the Sierra Club NYC Group, said, “The Sierra Club, the oldest national environmental advocacy organization, has endorsed Alessandra Biaggi for State Senate in the 34th District. The Sierra Club endorsement means a lot to our members in the district. It sends a message of strong support for the environment and Alessandra’s proven track record to address climate change. This vital area needs a leader who engages people in her district to support a future built on energy efficiency, clean energy, renewables and sustainability. Alessandra is clearly committed to protect public health, and promote safe and healthy communities that are free of toxic air and water pollution.”
“The people of the Bronx and throughout New York have suffered enough from pollution and its severe health effects,” Biaggi said. “In the Senate, I will stand with the Sierra Club and fight for the Climate and Community Protection Act, expanding access to renewable energy, improved and expanded mass transit to serve all communities, a corporate polluter fee and other measures to protect our neighborhoods and combat climate change. New York must be a leader in defending against and overturning the terrible policies coming out of Washington.”
