The Nominating Committee has searched all over the state for candidates to nominate for the Atlantic Chapter at-large positions on its Executive Board. We followed up on many names you suggested to us. Nine individuals have been selected to run for the five open seats. They are a spectacular slate of candidates with a very wide sense of involvement and activism. Additional information from each candidate is available below.
The Sierra Club, the largest grassroots environmental group in the world, is proudly democratic and member driven.
Read these unedited statements from each candidate below. Let your voice be heard: VOTE!
To vote: On the back page of your Fall Sierra Atlantic Newsletter, you will find a ballot. Follow the instructions as detailed on the newsletter.
Members who do not receive a ballot, or who damage or lose their ballot, may request a replacement from the Atlantic Chapter office employees. They will send you a replacement ballot bearing your membership number and the signature of a Chapter staff member. Only such replacement ballots sent to you from the Chapter staff will be counted. No replacement ballots will be issued after December 15, 2013. If you have any questions or problems, contact Chapter staff at 516-672-8252. Please allow enough time for your problem or question to be resolved before the deadline. Mail your ballots so that they are received on or before December 27, 2013. Ballots will be counted in early January 2014.
