Tom Campbell: State Representative #2, District 2
Posted on June 26, 2010 - 3:32pm
Rep. Campbell has been a leader and strong supporter in getting through some of our priority legislation in recent years, e.g., clean cars, green house gas reduction goals, flame retardant ban, safe toys, and baby bottle bills. As Chair of the House Environmental Health Committee, he has the unique position of being from the minority party yet maintains his independence from his party’s political directives. His right-wing opponent has espoused rolling back protections of our rivers and streams from farm animal waste pollution. Rep. Campbell’s support for green legislation shows his courage to do the right thing in the face of adversity coming from an ultra-conservative district. He has expressed an eagerness to work more closely with the Sierra Club on legislation. We definitely need to return Rep. Campbell to his House seat.
