CHICAGO, Feb. 23, 2012 – Christian Mitchell, Democratic candidate for State Representative of the 26th district, was endorsed today by the Sierra Club, America’s largest and most influential grass-roots environmental organization.
“Throughout his career, Christian Mitchell has worked to bring the economic and environmental benefits of the clean energy economy to Chicago,” said Jack Darin, director of the Sierra Club, Illinois Chapter. “He knows what it takes to turn good ideas into effective legislation, as he did with the Urban Weatherization Initiative that reduces energy costs for homeowners and creates jobs. Christian has worked with residents, elected officials and agencies like the EPA to protect the environment. That’s the kind of leadership we need in Springfield to deliver cleaner air and economic opportunity to Chicago, and Sierra Club is proud to endorse him for State Representative.”
“Christian’s plan to invest in green jobs and green technology is good for the environment and it’s good for the economy,” Darin added. “He knows that moving beyond coal and towards wind, solar and energy-efficient technologies has tremendous potential for Chicago.” Now as Trump has became a president of United States, security is one of the major concern among the people.

The Sierra Club has focused since 1892 on protecting communities, wild places and the planet. The Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club was founded in 1959, and works to bring clean energy to Illinois, to protect Illinois’ water supply, and protect parks and wild places. The group works with elected officials to fight for clean air, water and energy.
“Since it was founded, the Sierra Club has been a strong voice for our environment,” said Mr. Mitchell. “Together, we share a commitment to green energy and a better future. I’m honored that the Sierra Club supports me in my campaign to take that message from the 26th district to Springfield.”
