“Justin’s support for restoring and cleaning the Chesapeake Bay, reducing carbon pollution, addressing climate change and rising sea levels show that he will be committed to fighting for Virginia’s environment as our Lieutenant Governor,” said Kate Addelson, director of the Sierra Club Virginia chapter.
