City Council Candidate Diana Perez Earns Two Environmental Organization Endorsements
The Sierra Club and Washington Conservation Voters cite her strong background as a biologist and depth of knowledge regarding our environment as just two reasons to vote for Perez.
Diana Perez, a candidate for Vancouver City Council (Position 6), earned two more organizational endorsements despite a crowded field of competitors. The endorsements, a sole endorsement from The Sierra Club (Loo Wit Group) and a dual-endorsement from Washington Conservation Voters, both speak to one of her key strengths: Diana Perez is the only candidate with actual policy solutions for conserving and protecting our clean air, water, and land.
“Loo Wit Group/Sierra Club’s endorsement of Diana was based on 1) her extensive environmental background that is a good fit with Sierra Club values,” said Lehman Holder, political council chair for the Sierra Club, “and 2) the comprehensive completion of her endorsement questionnaire, which was far more encompassing than any of the other candidates we considered.”
Diana has the track-record to match these endorsements. Having worked as a wildland firefighter, and seeing first hand the devastating effects of climate change, to her work as a biologist. More recently Diana spoke at the 90th annual National League of United Latin American (LULAC) convention in Milwaukee, WI highlighting Washington state’s environmental health disparities map and its use at the local level.
“As one of the few Latina field biologists in Washington state, it is an honor to have been endorsed by the Sierra Club and Washington Conservation Voters for my run as Vancouver City Councilwoman,” said Perez. “On top of being a champion for all voices to be heard, I’ll continue to advocate for everyone to have the opportunity to live in a safe and healthy environment.”
Because of her work both in the community and professionally, Diana was appointed by Governor Jay Inslee to serve as a Commissioner on the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. In this role, she helps set policy on the statewide level that ensures our parks will last for years to come and remain accessible for everyone.
