Nanette Barragán is a proven environmental champion for California.
Barragán served on the Hermosa Beach City Council where she successfully led efforts to defeat a ballot measure that would have allowed oil drilling in the Santa Monica Bay. In recognition of her work, she received a 2015 Political Leadership Award from the Sierra Club. She has also worked to ban plastic bags in Hermosa Beach.
Barragán is fiercely committed to addressing climate change. In Congress, she will work to expand renewable energy and create clean energy jobs.
Barragán joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of retiring Representative Janice Hahn, who earned a 95 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard through 2015.
In her own words:
“We owe it to our children to leave them a better planet than the one we inherited. We can and will move towards
a sustainable future for our community by ending tax breaks for these polluters and using that money to create new, good-paying, renewable energy jobs and taking the positive steps to protect our community’s health currently harmed by pollution.”
