Pledge Signers: Local

The following candidates and elected officials have signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.

Taking the pledge means that a candidate’s campaign will adopt a policy to not knowingly accept any contributions over $200 from the PACs, executives, or front groups of fossil fuel companies — companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution, or sale of oil, gas, or coal.
