Sierra Club endorses Justin Fairfax for Lieutenant Governor

Grassroots group backs Fairfax, praises his commitment to clean air and water

RICHMOND, Virginia – Today, the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club endorsed Justin Fairfax for Lieutenant Governor.
Fairfax prioritizes leaving a clean environment for future generations in Virginia. He has emphasized the importance of boldly addressing climate change and sea level rise to confront the risks it poses to Virginians. He understands that smart carbon reduction will save residents money and create growth for Virginia with clean energy technologies.

“We are very pleased to announce today that the Sierra Club officially endorsed Justin Fairfax for Lieutenant Governor,” Corrina Beall, Sierra Club Virginia Chapter Legislative and Political Director, said. “We are confident that Justin will work to protect Virginia’s families’ health, air and water and build a clean energy economy that works for the Commonwealth.”

Along with the endorsement, the Sierra Club will lend its volunteer strength to Fairfax’s campaign. Sierra Club volunteers will work to contact voters on his behalf, and will speak to the public as often as possible about his continued work as a climate and environmental leader.

“Justin’s support for restoring and cleaning the Chesapeake Bay, reducing carbon pollution, addressing climate change and rising sea levels show that he will be committed to fighting for Virginia’s environment as our Lieutenant Governor,” Kate Addleson, Director of the Sierra Club Virginia Chapter, said.
