From the Hagen campaign:

District Attorney candidate Paul Hagen has been endorsed by the Sierra Club.

“Mr. Hagen had much success during his eight years as the circuit environmental prosecutor for Humboldt, Del Norte, and Lake Counties. His work has shown that environmental issues are important to him. Paul has the best environmental record of the candidates” said the Sierra Club.

The Sierra Club is the oldest and largest grassroots environmental organization in the United States. It was founded in 1892 by the well-known conservationist and preservationist John Muir.  The Sierra Club has hundreds of thousands of members in chapters located throughout the country.

“Earning the endorsement of the Sierra Club is a great honor,” said Hagen.  “Protecting public health and safety through the enforcement of our environmental laws is a very important job of the District Attorney’s office, and I’m very grateful for this recognition by the Sierra Club.”

Hagen served as a prosecutor for more than eleven years in four North Coast District Attorney offices and has successfully prosecuted a wide variety of criminal and civil cases.  Press releases and other information about some of these cases are posted on the Hagen campaign website,
