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.
In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
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, Political Committee Chair, if you would like to get involved.
