SIERRA CLUB GIVES HUTTLE EARLY ENDORSEMENT
Today, the New Jersey Sierra Club announced its endorsement of Assemblywoman Valerie Huttle’s campaign for State Senate.
“We are proud to announce our endorsement of Assemblywoman Valerie Huttle for State Senate in New Jersey’s 37th Legislative District,” said Richard Isaac, Chair of the Sierra Club New Jersey Chapter. “Valerie is a legislator who has earned our endorsement by providing incredibly strong leadership on environmental and environmental justice issues from keeping lead out of our drinking water, to reducing pollution and increasing recycling, keeping smoking away from our public parks and beaches, and ensuring that all of us have affordable housing.“
Isaac continued, “New Jersey needs a fighter in the State Senate, and Assemblywoman Huttle is a proven, steadfast environmental champion, who has fought for – and will continue to fight – to protect the health of New Jersey’s environment and the well-being of New Jersey families. We believe that Valerie will continue to be a strong environmental leader, and we fully endorse her for State Senate in the Democratic Primary through to the election this November.”
The 37th Legislative District is within eastern Bergen County, and consists of Alpine, Bogota, Cresskill, Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Leonia, Northvale, Palisades Park, Rockleigh, Teaneck, and Tenafly.
