Here in Benicia, Big Oil is already setting aside funds to stack our City Council in November. See Valero PAC report shows $248,111 on hand to influence Benicia’s 2020 election.
As a followup to yesterday’s post, “Wave of oil money hits local Calif. climate candidates” – I am passing on a rather happy email from the California League of Conservation Voters (below).
Please consider supporting the CLCV.
We took on Big Oil and Won!
The results of the California Primary speak loud and clear: Californians chose the environment over Big Oil.
Even though Big Oil spent millions of dollars this primary, California voters rejected their best efforts and 95% of CLCV-endorsed candidates are moving on to the General Election in November!
Through our endorsements, our Environmental Scorecard, and joining forces with key partners in spending strategically in priority races, CLCV is on the front-lines, making sure environmental champions are heading to the November General Election.
Heading into the general election, Big Oil will amplify their efforts to stop our progress. We have a tough fight ahead of us in the fall, but we never back down from bullies – even if it means we are outspent by millions of dollars. Can you chip in today to make sure we can be just as effective come November?
