Click here to donate to Carter's campaign:I’m honored. Today, the Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club officially endorsed our campaign. Here’s what Georgia Chapter Director Colleen Kiernan had to say:
“Jason Carter has proven that he is the only candidate in the field willing to protect Georgia’s coast and environment. He has committed to supporting Georgia’s growing clean energy industries, which provide jobs while protecting our air and water. The Sierra Club will proudly mobilize our members to help Jason Carter win in November.”
Once our natural resources have been depleted, there is no going back. That’s why I am a proud advocate for our environment, and have fought against proposals that threaten our coast, our rivers, and our water supply.
I’ve championed legislation to make it easier for consumers to install solar panels. Making it easier for consumers to access renewable energy isn’t just critical for the environment – it is untapped potential for our state’s economy.
New transportation options have to be at the forefront of our state’s priorities. As governor, I will work with state, regional and local leaders to develop smart initiatives to increase our transit options, reduce traffic, and promote ride-sharing.
I’ve been proud to stand up for the environment during my time in the Senate – and my commitment won’t change when I’m governor.
If you think Georgia deserves leaders who will stand up for our environment, please contribute $10 to our campaign today at http://www.carterforgovernor.com/....
Thank you, Sierra Club, for your support. Now, let’s get to work!
