Sierra Club Endorses Eric Garcetti

The Sierra Club has endorsed Eric Garcetti for Mayor of Los Angeles. Founded in 1892, the Sierra Club is the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.

Howard Strauss, Chair of the Sierra Club - Angeles Chapter’s L.A. County Political Committee, said, "Eric Garcetti has delivered proven results on the environment in the neighborhoods he represents and citywide. As Mayor, he will drive an agenda to make L.A. cleaner, healthier and more prosperous."

"I am honored to have the important endorsement of the Sierra Club, and I look forward to working with them to win this election and to bring cleaner air, healthier communities, and a stronger economy to Los Angeles," Garcetti said. "My plan is to create 20,000 local green jobs through installing and building solar, improving energy efficiency in buildings and cleaning L.A.'s water."

Garcetti has an unmatched environmental record. He authored the nation’s largest green building ordinance, the nation’s largest local clean water initiative, and legislation making L.A. the nation's largest city with a solar feed-in-tariff. He nearly tripled the number of parks in his district by finding innovative ways to create 31 new neighborhood parks. He led the effort to pass the plastic bag ban and Low Impact Development Ordinance.

Garcetti has won a broad spectrum of endorsements, including from the California League of Conservation Voters; Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters; the California National Organization of Women (NOW); Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley; the Northeast Democratic Club; the San Pedro Democratic Club; the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club; the Stonewall Democratic Club; the Southern California Chapter of Americans for Democratic Action; the North Valley Democratic Club; the Democratic Advocates for Disability Issues; the Los Angeles County Young Democrats; the Latino Democrats of the San Fernando Valley; the Mexican-American Bar Association; the Latino Coalition of Los Angeles - PAC; the Teamsters Joint Council 42; United Teachers Los Angeles; the Communications Workers of America, Southern California Council; the Engineers and Architects Association.
