The facts: During the past four years, state Sen. Jeff Golden has diligently served us with integrity and action.
His efforts to help bring factions together to tackle getting legislation passed on climate adaptation and mitigation have resulted in moving our state closer to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that threaten our very survival.
Jeff used committee deliberations, meetings with the governor and more to help the massive coalition which came together to reject the Jordan Cove Pipeline project. He helped pass the Clean Energy Targets Bill that requires electric utilities to provide 100% clean electric generation by 2040.
His work with both conservationists and the timber industry as Natural Resources Committee Chair passed the Private Forest Accord and created the Elliott State Research Forest. In addition, Senate Bill 762, which will provide more than $220 million to help improve wildfire preparedness, was passed with bipartisan support.
It’s time to reelect Sen. Golden so he can continue this all important work for us, for our children and grandchildren.
