New Jersey Sierra Club Endorses Fox for Summit Council
The Sierra Club is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots environmental organization. The New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club is the 10th largest of the 65 Chapters. Each year the New Jersey Chapter makes a number of endorsements of candidates and ballot measures. The goals of the endorsements are:
- To elect candidates who will support and promote environmental protection;
- To encourage Club members and other environmentalists to participate in the political process; and
- To strengthen the Sierra Club's capacity to elect pro-environment candidates at every level of government.
The New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club is proud to endorse Marjorie Fox for the Summit Ward 2, Common Council seat.
Allen Swanson, Union County Conservation Chair of the Loantaka Group of the Sierra Club stated: “Marjorie Fox represents everything one would want in a pro-environment candidate. She has supported the initiatives reducing polystyrene and plastics, increasing solar projects, electric vehicles charging stations, sustainable buildings and more.” In addition, Marjorie Fox, has practiced environmental law as an attorney in New York City, advocating for wetlands protection and conservation projects. We urge all the voters of Summit Ward 2 to show their support for the strong advocacy Marjorie Fox has demonstrated in word and deed in her position as the President of the Summit Common Council.
The Sierra Club encourages everyone to become informed about environmental issues, to become active and most of all to actively participate by making a plan to vote in this year’s crucial election.
