Sierra Club Endorses Ralph Northam for Lt. Governor

Ralph grew up on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and values the Chesapeake Bay as a national treasure. Ralph knows the Chesapeake is vital to Virginia’s economy, and protecting it from environmental harm is a value that Ralph has stood up for as a state Senator since 2007. In the Virginia Senate, he supported rebuilding blue crab populations, banning phosphorus from most lawn fertilizers sold in Virginia, and banning non-native oysters from the Bay.

Ralph Northam takes the climate crisis seriously. As Lt. Governor, he will stand up to Cuccinelli and other climate deniers who refuse to acknowledge the effect of climate change on coastal communities from Alexandria to Hampton Roads. Ralph firmly believes that the new energy economy has unlimited potential to create well-paying jobs for Virginians and provide a sustainable source of energy for the Commonwealth. As Lieutenant Governor, Ralph will continue to support efforts to promote alternative energy solutions, including wind and solar.

With an even split between Democrats and Republicans in the Virginia Senate, the Lieutenant Governor will be tasked with casting tie-breaking votes on legislation. Ralph Northam has a record in the Virginia Senate that uniquely qualifies him to effectively navigate the legislative process and protect our values.

The Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club urges you to vote for Ralph Northam for Lt. Governor on November 5.
