The Sierra Club Hawaii Chapter is backing Mazie Hirono for the U.S. Senate and Tulsi Gabbard and Colleen Hanabusa for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Press release quote from Steve Montgomery, political co-chair of the club:

Candidates endorsed by the Sierra Club have a proven record of protecting Hawaii’s clean water, special places, and spectacular biodiversity while putting Hawaii on a path to a sustainable future. They understand that transitioning to sustainable solutions — like developing clean energy and increasing local food production — is the basis for a strong economy.
