CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today added Sierra Club Virginia Chapter to the list of organizations endorsing her campaign to represent Virginia's 67th House District, which stretches from Chantilly and South Riding to Fair Lakes and Oakton.
“Karrie's commitment to the development of clean energy careers in the Chantilly area and throughout the Commonwealth shows that she will be a great partner in the House of Delegates to protect our air and water," stated Kate Addleson, Sierra Club Virginia Chapter Director. "We look forward to Karrie's victory in November, and her fight for environmental protections for the 67th District."
"I'm excited to earn the endorsement of Sierra Club's Virginia Chapter," said Delaney. "Northern Virginia and the 67th District's technology corridor provides a unique opportunity to create good-paying, environmentally friendly jobs that strengthen our local economy and protect our air and water. I look forward to working with Sierra Club to achieve that."
