Mary Lou Dickerson: State Representative #2, District 36

Rep. Dickerson works behind the scenes on the Natural Resources Committee to maintain a progressive direction on a committee that might otherwise be a barrier for the environmental community. Rep. Dickerson sponsors important legislation – including a bill to prohibit cruise ships from discharging waste into the state’s waters -- and makes sure that the House Democratic Caucus prioritizes Sierra Club issues, serving as a reliable source of strategic help for winning crucial votes. She’s a founding member of an important weekly dinner attended by environmental lobbyists and their best allies in the House.
