Sierra Club Survives

The Sacramento Bee -- Sierra Club leadership's candidates win
Sierra Club leaders have beaten back an effort by anti-immigration forces to gain control of the nation's largest and most influential environmental group.

In elections for the Sierra Club's 15-member board of directors, candidates picked by the leadership won all five open seats in a landslide, according to vote tallies released Wednesday, several hours after voting closed...

...each received at least 110,000 votes. None of the runners-up received more than 43,000 votes.

...A record number of members - 171,616 out of 757,058, or nearly 23 percent - participated in the vote. Less than 10 percent took part in other recent elections.
Good news.

I joined the Sierra Club a couple of years ago, along with Planned Parenthood. (George Bush inspired me to do so; I've been a long time member of the ACLU, but it seemed that more was required..)

Anyway, I voted in this Sierra Club election; probably wouldn't have had not Neiwert and others been discussing the implications.
