Thank Your 2011-2012 Sierra Club Environmental Champion Legislators
The Sierra Club Michigan Chapter released
its 2011-2012 Legislative Scorecard, which tracks legislators environmental
voting records, for the Michigan House of Representatives. While the scorecard generally
showed Democrats voting to maintain and/or strengthen environmental protections,
more disturbingly it showed Republicans generally vote to weaken or eliminate
environmental protections. However, six State Reps scored a perfect 100%, voting the right way on every environmental bill that the Sierra Club was concerned about. We have given these six legislators the honor of being our 2011-2012 Environmental Champions.
Thank these six representatives for protecting the Great Lakes and Michigan's natural resources!
Thank you for standing up for the environment
Dear [Decision Maker],
The Sierra Club Michigan Chapter released their mid-term legislative scorecard recently, and you were one of the six State Representatives who had a perfect voting record on environmental bills. I wanted to make sure you know how much I appreciate this.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
