Sierra Club makes its political choices

In the Ward 3 council race, the club endorsed Mary Cheh. The club faced a very difficult decision in Ward 3, which is blessed with a strong field of candidates, including Robert Gordon, who has made environmental protection a prominent part of his campaign, and Bill Rice, noted for his transportation experience.

“This was probably the toughest call so far for this year’s races,” said Lisa Swanson, the club chapter’s political committee chair. “But we see in Mary Cheh a knowledgeable and articulate leader who would be a strong advocate for parkland protection and transit-oriented development that would make D.C. a more liveable place.”
