Choose this great environmental leader

By
From page A6 | May 15, 2014 |

Our state faces some very tough environmental problems these days, exacerbated by the worst drought in our recorded history and the effects of climate change.

During times like these we need strong leaders who have the integrity to speak the truth, stand up to the special interests, and focus on sustainable, long-term solutions that will meet the needs of our children and grandchildren. Business-as-usual politics in Sacramento is no longer an option.

That’s why, as a resident of Assembly District 4, I’m “all in” for the next great environmental leader in the state Legislature, Joe Krovoza. Joe’s proven public service record, effectiveness as an environmental leader, and personal commitment to conservation are exactly the prescription Sacramento needs to get its environmental priorities in order.

Joe has worked for 17 years at UC Davis developing world-class academic programs and public-private partnerships in clean transportation and energy efficiency. As mayor of Davis, he has spearheaded efforts to protect open space, improve air and water quality, increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon pollution, implement 21st-century waste management practices, and develop a wildlife management plan that is a model for cities across the state.

As head of the Putah Creek Council, he previously spearheaded the efforts to transform the creek’s ecology and restore its historic salmon run.

In the Assembly, Joe will stand up for California’s environmental and agricultural treasures and will aggressively combat climate change and polluters. This is why he has been endorsed by the Sierra Club and why the California League of Conservation Voters, environmental leaders and prominent ranchers throughout the district are also rallying behind him.

Assembly District 4 needs Joe, and so does California! Please join me in voting for him on June 3.
