Dave Min Announces the Endorsement of Sierra Club California
Orange County, Calif. — TODAY, UC Irvine Law Professor Dave Min, who is running in California’s State Senate District 37, announced the endorsement of the Sierra Club, the world renowned environmental protection organization. Dave Min is running against climate change denier John Moorlach who has taken significant contributions from oil interests.
“We are seeing right now the importance of having elected officials who will fight for science and evidence-based solutions,” said Kathryn Phillips, Director, Sierra Club California. “Dave Min is the only candidate in this race who accepts the scientific consensus that global climate change is accelerating and poses a threat to our way of life. He understands the urgency of reversing trends on carbon emissions and protecting our coastlines, our clean air and water, and our natural resources. And he has the policy background to get good environmental policies in place, ones that can save our planet while creating good-paying Green jobs in California. We are proud to stand with Dave and endorse him for California State Senate.”
The Sierra Club, with over 700,000 members nationwide, is the oldest grassroots environmental organization in the United States. With almost 4 million members worldwide, the Sierra Club has brought people all over the world together to create the most powerful and progressive environmental movement the world has ever seen.
“I’m proud to have received the endorsement of the Sierra Club,” said Min. “Global climate change is the most important issue of our time. I look forward to meeting the enormity of this great challenge head on. I’m grateful for the support of the Sierra Club, and environmentalists everywhere.”
David Min is a University of California Irvine Law Professor, father of three, and a former economic policy staffer in the United States Senate and for the Center for American Progress. Min began his legal career at the Securities and Exchange Commission to protect the retirement security of seniors, turning down high paying jobs to serve the public interest. He is a leading economic expert whose research focuses on banking and housing policy.
California State Senate District 37 is located in Orange County and includes the communities of Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Foothill Ranch, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park and is ranked by political handicappers as a “toss up.” The incumbent career politician John Moorlach, an unwavering Trump supporter and anti-vaccination proponent, was soundly rejected by a majority of voters in the March 3, 2020 primary election.
