Fritz Langrock has been endorsed by the Vermont chapter of the Sierra Club in his run for the Vermont House in the Addison-3 District.
The Sierra Club chapter’s recent announcement follows earlier endorsements of Fritz from Vermont Conservation Voters, the Vermont branch of the National Education Association and the Vermont State Employees Association.
“The (Sierra Club’s] Vermont chapter is excited to support a select group of candidates who have either a solid history of protecting and working to improve our environment or have committed to step up on the issues that most deeply impact our environment,” said David Ellenbogen, political committee chair. “We encourage our members and supporters to help elect these candidates.”
The Vermont Sierra Club’s endorsements are based on surveys, voting records (for incumbents), shared knowledge that the political committee members bring to the process, and in some cases personal interviews with candidates.
Vermont Conservation Voters is a non-profit organization that serves as the non-partisan political voice of the state’s environmental community. VCV seeks to make environmental protection a top priority for elected officials, candidates and voters in order to turn Vermonters’ environmental values into state priorities.
Founded in 1982, VCV works to elect environmentally-friendly candidates to public office, and then holds elected officials accountable for the decisions they make affecting our air, water, communities, land, and wildlife.
