Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
The Ohio Chapter Political Committee works to endorse and promote pro-environment candidates at the local, state, and national level. Political Action Committee (PAC) donations are also used to support endorsed candidates.
The committee meets regularly and encourages volunteer participation, particularly during the busy campaign season, to assist with research, phone calls, mailings, and candidate interviews. We are also looking for longer-term volunteer committee members who have knowledge of Ohio politics and wish to be part of the endorsement process.
Contact Eric Britton or Debbie Clark, Political Committee Chairs, if you would like to get involved.
