TajLV laundry's done, clean is good
My Sierra Club group took a stand in one of our local elections, aiming to oust an incumbent with a poor environmental voting record, as well as a bad history on social issues. We joined with other progressive groups to defeat him in the primary, against strong odds. He had the big money, the backing of high-ranking party leaders and a sense of entitlement. We had grassroots phonebanks, door knocks and small donation fundraising. The results are in. For a change, the underdog has proven triumphant. Nevada will have its first black lesbian military veteran pastor in the State Senate.
