Michael McGinn: Mayor, Seattle

A former Sierra Club leader, Mayor McGinn is one of our own and has done us proud. McGinn believes that fighting climate change starts locally. He’s proven his commitment to that principle by leading the fight against coal export terminals in Washington State, and founding a new coalition of more than 40 regional leaders to fight coal exports (The Leadership Alliance Against Coal). McGinn stood up with Bill McKibben in Seattle last November kicking off the fossil fuel divestment movement by committing to divest Seattle’s financial holdings from fossil fuels. Investment in public transportation has been a cornerstone of his administration. McGinn has championed major investments in a city-wide light rail system and bicycle plan. Mayor McGinn has also advanced green building in Seattle, improving energy efficiency, creating jobs, and saving money for families and businesses. We’re proud to endorse Mike McGinn for Mayor of Seattle. http://mcginnformayor.com/
