BOSTON Today, the Sierra Club, the largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the country, endorsed Rep. Ed Markey in the United States Senate special election in Massachusetts.
Statement from Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club:
“Throughout his 36 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Ed Markey has been a staunch defender of the environment and champion for clean energy. Time and time again, he has led fights to clean up our air and water, curb the dangerous carbon pollution that is disrupting our climate, and put our nation on the path to an energy efficient economy powered by clean, safe energy. For those reasons, the Sierra Club enthusiastically endorses Ed Markey for U.S. Senate.”
Statement from Dan Proctor, Chapter Chair of the Massachusetts Chapter Sierra Club:
Rep. Markey has been steadfast in his dedication to clean air, clean water and clean energy -- even when those issues lacked popular attention or political expediency. There are few elected officials we could endorse more heartily to join the U.S. Senate than Ed Markey.”
