Sierra Club Endorses Holihan
The Mount Vernon Group of the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club announced its endorsement of Sean Holihan for Alexandria City Council on June 6th, citing Holihan’s “clear understanding and support for walkable communities.”
The Sierra Club based their endorsement on the answers to questionnaires and interviews with the executive committee of the Mount Vernon Group. The questionnaire considered candidates’ views on the group’s environmental priorities for Alexandria, such as promoting walking, bicycling and transit use and promoting clean energy options. It also asked for the candidates’ opinions on issues like the Beauregard Small Area Plan, the redevelopment of the city’s waterfront and the Potomac Yard Metro station.
