In early 2016 I was out with some colleagues and one of them said, “We elected Reagan twice, Trump could win.” I chuckled and said “OK, boomer” to myself.

The Rhode Island General Assembly looks to be getting a bit greener after last week’s elections.
This past Tuesday, September 8th, Rhode Island held our statewide primary election. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this election looked a bit different than in past years. Usually, we know who the winners are by the end of the night or early the next morning but this year, we had to wait a few days. So we spent a few days biting our nails and constantly refreshing the Board of Elections results page. But it was worth the wait.
Last night the people of Virginia led the way and voted for clean water, climate action and the environment, and voted against the Trump Administration’s anti-science agenda.
Through the support of Clean Water voters like you, Clean Water candidates Dan Helmer, Hala Ayala and Wendy Gooditis won their elections to the House of Delegates. This is a huge win for the environment, our water and our communities!
The 2019 elections present a huge opportunity to flip the Virginia House of Delegates to pro-environment leaders who will help advance clean water priorities during the Virginia General Assembly legislative session in 2020.

You don’t have to run for office to make change. This fall there will be local elections across the state, and candidates running for office need your help. Here’s some things that you can do today to get involved.
On Tuesday, November 7, the people of Virginia led the way and voted for clean water, climate action and the environment, and voted against the Trump Administration’s anti-science agenda.
Through the support of clean water voters like you, Ralph Northam won the race for governor and Kathleen Murphy won her reelection to the House of Delegates. This is a huge victory for our environment, our water and our communities.
Last night showed that Americans are rejecting leaders who won't join us to protect our rights, our environment, and our health.
Clean Water Action works hard to keep people involved in the democratic process, even outside of election day. Contrary to popular belief, politicians are not working against the interest of the people. They just have a lot on their plates.
Autumn is my favorite season of the year. We’re past the stifling heat and humidity of summer, the changing color of leaves makes my drive to work a rolling rainbow of foliage and my work as a canvasser takes on special significance because, every two years, it’s election season.
