Tell Virginia Democratic leaders: No Dirty Fossil Money!

Add your name: tell the leaders of the Virginia Democratic Party to support a ban on political contributions from Dominion Power and other fossil-fuel companies.

 

To: Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Senate Minority Leader Dick Saslow, House Minority Leader David Toscano, Virginia Democratic Party Chairwoman Susan Swecker:

 

There’s a lot of work ahead if we are to have a truly clean Democratic Party that can effectively oppose the fossil-fueled agenda of Trump’s Republicans. In Virginia, we’re going to have to get our state Democratic Party to turn off the Dominion Power dirty-money pipeline.

Virginia is lagging behind its neighboring states on the renewable revolution because of Dominion’s influence-peddling. And now politicians on the Dominion payroll are supporting the fracked-gas Atlantic Coast Pipeline and Mountain Valley Pipeline projects.

It’s crucial that the Virginia Democratic Party knows that climate hawks all over the nation will support a decision to ban corrupting political money.

Add your name: tell the leaders of the Virginia Democratic Party to support a ban on political contributions from Dominion Power and other fossil-fuel companies.

Your fellow climate hawk,

RL Miller

    It’s time for Virginia Democrats to support the interests of their constituents, many of whom oppose the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, rather than Dominion and other companies that profit from energy extraction.

    If Democrats want to win elections, they must follow Bernie Sanders’ lead. Get corporate/wealthy donor money out of the party and go back to being the progressive grassroots party of Roosevelt. The NEOliberal party of Clinton is dead! As Cornel West said…“You can’t have social justice without economic justice and environmental justice”.

    Marie Hyder Dominion Power and other utilities have no business influencing decisions affecting our climate.

    We should all support alternative fuels instead!

    We need to do more to make solar energy available to the average consumer. Dominion Power does not want this to happen. They want to control all of the energy provided to Virginia consumers.
