Must Read

The Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club has endorsed the re-election bid of Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-Arlington-Alexandria), who is being challenged by Karishma Mehta in the June 8 Democratic primary.

Lopez “is a fierce advocate for environmental justice and climate change in the General Assembly and beyond,” said Connor Kish, legislative and political director for the organization, pointing to a host of legislative initiatives the incumbent has either patroned or helped shepherd to victory in Richmond.

Since winning office in 2011, Lopez “has continued to make environment and renewable-energy issues a top priority,” the organization said in its endorsement, issued on Earth Day.
