Minneapolis – Today the Sierra Club North Star Chapter announced its endorsement of Erin Murphy for election as Governor of Minnesota in a statement from Josh Davis, co-chair of the chapter’s Political Committee.
“Rep. Erin Murphy impressed us not only with her strong voting record on our issues during her legislative career, but by her passion and commitment to prioritizing environmental issues as Governor. Put simply, Erin Murphy will be a champion for clean water, clean air and a clean energy future in the Governor’s office.
“As a nurse, Rep. Murphy clearly understands how our environment impacts our health. She is committed to addressing the disproportionately negative impacts of climate change and pollution within communities of color and indigenous communities across Minnesota. She will lead the action we need to protect the people and places that make our state a special place to live.
“Rep. Murphy also brings on board Rep. Erin Maye Quade, who has been an outstanding environmental champion in the Minnesota House. This team offers a passion for values that Sierra Club members share. Sierra Club is excited to back this campaign in the August 14 primary election and the November general election, and we’re excited about what we’ll be able to achieve for the people of Minnesota by working with Erin Murphy as our next Governor.”
