Council member and current Borough Council candidate Rachel Ehrlich is honored to be just one of only two Council candidates in New Jersey to be endorsed by the Sierra Club. In their endorsement, the Sierra Club acknowledged Ehrlich’s commitment to fighting climate change and protecting our environment: “The New Jersey Chapter is pleased to support your campaign in appreciation of your demonstrated commitment to protecting the environment.”
Like Ehrlich, the Sierra Club has a stated commitment to promoting clean energy and reducing dependency on fossil fuels, protecting open spaces, and advocating for safe and healthy communities.
As a current Council member, Rachel Ehrlich has been a strong advocate for the environment, serving as the liaison to the Madison Environmental Commission and the Sustainable Madison Advisory Committee in her role as Council Liaison for Engineering and Public Works. Throughout 2021, Ehrlich partnered with green team members from both groups to create and adopt the Climate Action Resolution for Madison, which acknowledges the threat of climate change and aligns the borough with the New Jersey state Energy Master Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Ehrlich and her running mate Tom Haralampoudis have also received an endorsement from the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, another prestigious environmental advocacy group. This honor underscores their commitment to a healthier planet and a greener Madison. Learn more about their commitment to moving Madison forward together.
