The Sierra Club announced two endorsements yesterday in the Del Mar City Council race, giving the nod to Glenn Warren and Bob Gans.
The announcement coincided with an extreme heat wave and wildfire threats that underscore the importance of electing candidates who will be champions for our environment.
The Sierra Club’s endorsement process is a rigorous one: evaluating past environmental records of candidates and responses to an extensive questionnaire, and conducting probing interviews led by a Sierra Club team with extensive knowledge of environmental issues on a local, regional, national and global level.
Glenn and Bob are strongly committed to Del Mar’s Cimate Action Plan, protection of our ocean and beaches, lagoon, and open spaces, and ensuring clean air, clean water, and a healthy environment for all.
They share the Sierra Club’s goal “to accelerate a transition to 100 percent clean, renewable energy for all,” and are proud that Del Mar has been rated by the Sierra Club’s “Ready for 100” campaign as one of the U.S. cities that is committed to 100% clean and renewable energy. Because Del Mar founded and joined the Clean Energy Alliance along with its partners Solana Beach and Carlsbad, we are well on our way to cleaner, healthier and more affordable energy, and we are gaining local control over our energy future.
This is a critical time in shaping Del Mar’s environmental future. Bob and Glenn look forward to working together with you to achieve Del Mar’s goals for a sustainable and healthy environment.
