Shari Pollesch gained another endorsement Monday as the Sierra Club included her in the latest batch of candidates it is recommending to voters. Pollesch is running for the Democratic nomination to challenge incumbent Republican Joe Hune, who represents western and northern Washtenaw County along with most of Livingston County in District 22 of the Michigan Senate.

Pollesch has served on the Michigan League of Conservation Voters Board, including two years as chair.  She regularly participates in Sierra Club activities including Citizen Lobby Day, advocacy trips to Washington D.C., writing letters to newspapers, and fighting against fracking in Livingston County.

When asked about her endorsement on Tuesday, Pollesch told "if we make the planet uninhabitable, nothing else will really matter."
