Kevin Ranker: State Senator, District 40

Kevin Ranker chairs the Senate Energy, Natural Resources, and Marine Waters Committee. Over the years he has been a tireless leader on conservation issues, both inside and outside the legislature. During the 2012 legislative session, Senator Ranker worked to defend the state natural resource agency budgets, making clear the connection between funding natural resource programs/projects and "green jobs." He also led efforts in the Senate to protect I-937 (the intiative which requires utilities achieve energy conservation and renewable energy goals). In 2011 he was prime sponsor of oil spill response legislation and has a deep interest in protecting marine waters. The Sierra Club is proud to sponsor Kevin Ranker for State Senate.
