Ari Grayson, Candidate for California’s 37th Senate District Announces Major Endorsement
Ari Grayson of Laguna Beach, candidate for California’s 37th Senate District has received the endorsement of his campaign by the Sierra Club. Grayson responded by saying “I am deeply honored to receive the endorsement of the Sierra Club, an organization founded by John Muir, the man who helped preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park, and other national wilderness areas and treasures. Current, and future generations of Californians are deeply indebted to John Muir and to the Sierra Club for their work preserving the natural beauty of our State. In fact, the nation and the world owe John Muir and the Sierra Club their gratitude as well.”
California’s 37th Senate District includes three coastal cities that are world-renown: Huntington Beach for its classic beaches, Newport Beach for its beautiful harbor, and Laguna Beach for its pristine water and precious marine life. These exquisite resources are part of the legacy of Muir’s and they are here for everyone to enjoy. “As a representative – and as a citizen – it is my sacred trust to protect our natural habitats for the beauty they provide and for the life they sustain,” stated Grayson.
According to Grayson “This endorsement is particularly meaningful to me because so much of my professional career has been in energy efficient building design and emphasizes the human/nature connection. I consider it our responsibility to design places that support and sustain human and animal life while using the least amount of resources possible. I was part of the design team responsible for the 1st commercial building in Scottsdale, Arizona that received a LEED designation (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). I’ve received awards and recognition for my work in solar design, in energy efficient lighting design, and in school facility planning. Therefore, to receive the Sierra Club’s endorsement and support for the leadership I will bring to the State senate on environmental issues is special. California’s economy will be vibrant and will grow by leading the nation in the creation of green jobs and renewable energy technologies.”
