Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th) has been endorsed for re-election by the Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club.

“In two short years in the House of Delegates, Patrick has proven his commitment to the environment by sponsoring legislation to encourage green building design and construction, and been a strong voice for transit and clean water,” said J.R. Tolbert, assistant director of the Virginia Sierra Club.

Hope is facing an Independent Green challenger on Nov. 8, but has picked up no other opposition.
