My thanks to the Sierra Club North Star Chapter for this endorsement. I’m excited to work with Sierra Club to advance the city’s work on protecting our air and water, fighting climate change, getting to Zero Waste, and transitioning to clean energy. As a chemical engineer, I have a particular interest in how public works and the city’s infrastructure are part of the challenge as well as part of the solution.
From the Sierra Club: “Erica Mauter brings impressive knowledge of city government structure and operations, and a deep commitment to centering racial equity in her campaign and approach to policy and politics. We believe Ward 11 and all Minneapolis residents would be well served by Erica’s expertise in the city’s budgeting process gained as a member of the Capital Long Range Improvement Committee (CLIC). We further believe that as a queer woman of color, Mauter brings experiences and perspectives not currently represented on the Council or heard in local government. We share her belief that representation of all perspectives in our local government matters.”
