SIERRA CLUB ENDORSES Emanuel Cleaver, II
Nation’s Largest Grassroots Environmental Group Praises Work to Protect Missouri’s Environment
[Kansas City]: The Missouri Chapter of the Sierra Club today announced its endorsement of Emanuel Cleaver, II for the Fifth Congressional District in the 2018 election.
"We are pleased to announce today that the Sierra Club officially endorses Representative Cleaver for re‑election," said Ross Hunt, Sierra Club Missouri Chapter Political Chair. "We are confident that he will continue work to protect Missouri families’ health, air and water, and build a clean energy economy that works for the Show-Me State."
Given the current administration’s ongoing threats to our clean air and water and public lands, it is more important than ever to elect environmental champions like Rep. Cleaver. When President Trump announced this past June that the United States would leave the Paris Climate Agreement, Rep. Cleaver immediately spoke out on the need for continued action to address climate change.
"We are deeply grateful to Rep. Cleaver for co-sponsoring HR 502, the Permanent Re-authorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund", said local Sierra Club outings chair Eileen McManus "Cleaver is a true environmental champion who supports adequate and dependable funding to protect natural areas in Missouri."
Along with the endorsement, the Sierra Club will lend its volunteer strength to Cleaver's campaign.
"We pledge to do all we can to help ensure Rep. Cleaver is re‑elected," said Claus Wawrzinek. "Sierra Club volunteers will contact voters on his behalf and we will speak to the public as often as possible about his exemplary environmental record. We look forward to a victory for Mr. Cleaver on election night and to Emanuel Cleaver fighting for the environment as our U.S. Representative."
