Pete Aguilar Receives Backing of Sierra Club

(San Bernardino, CA) – Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar, Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 31st district, received the endorsement of the Sierra Club, his campaign announced today.

In making its endorsement, Rick Estes, Chair of the Sierra Club’s San Gorgonio Chapter said, “The Sierra Club is pleased to endorse Mayor Aguilar because he is committed to promoting clean energy solutions to move the nation beyond fossil fuels and towards a safe, clean future built on sustainability, energy efficiency and American innovation.” 

Founded in 1892, the Sierra Club works to protect wildlife, promote clean energy solutions, and ensure communities are healthy and free of toxic air and polluted water.

Commenting on Sierra Club’s endorsement, Pete Aguilar said, “The Inland Empire is no stranger to the effects of pollution. That’s why I’m deeply committed to help combat climate change by working towards solutions, such as increasing the use of renewable energy. I’m pleased to have the support of the Sierra Club as we seek to enhance the environmental sustainability in our communities.”

As Redlands Mayor, Aguilar has been a champion for sustainable development and bringing public attention to the consequences of climate change. 

Aguilar supported efforts in Redlands to promote greater energy efficiency and conservation, including green building and climate-friendly purchasing practices. He also helped draw attention to the need for increased investments in renewable energy to reduce carbon emissions in the region, and is a leading advocate for a new passenger rail line in San Bernardino County to reduce heavy traffic and pollution.

Aguilar also has the backing of the League of Conservation Voters.
