"I believe strongly that climate change is not just a challenge we must tackle to avert disaster, but that it is an opportunity to build a new clean energy economy and preserve our quality of life." With statements like this, Suzan DelBene has demonstrated that she understands the environmental issues facing us today. She has taken action, as a leader in the House of Representative. One of her first acts as a newly elected House member was to reach across the aisle to work with Rep Reichert to introduce the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers bill. Sierra Club is proud to give her our endorsement and encourage our members and supporters in the 1st Congressional district to vote for her.
