Sierra Club California has endorsed Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza in the District 4 Assembly race.
“Joe has demonstrated that he walks the talk on the environment,” said Kathryn Phillips, the organization’s director, in a news release from the campaign. “Sierra Club is confident a vote for Joe will yield good policies that protect public health and the environment and help build a sustainable economy.”
The 4th Assembly District includes both the Motherlode and Redwood Chapters of the Sierra Club. Both voted to endorse Krovoza.
He serves as the senior director for development and external relations for the UC Davis Energy Efficiency Center and Institute for Transportation Studies. He led the nonprofit Putah Creek Council for seven years, during which time he was awarded Davis’ environmental recognition award.
His campaign touts him as “the lead environmental voice” on the Davis City Council.
Krovoza is competing against two Democrats, Davis Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk and Napa County Supervisor Bill Didd, and two Republicans, Esparto farmer and retired U.S Marine reservist Charlie Schaupp and Davis resident Dustin Call, an aide to Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Chino Hills. The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, in the June 3 primary will advance to November’s general election.
