Does this Fundraising Appeal Cross the Out-of-Bounds Line?
(Editor’s Note: Government Code Section 84308 states:
“No officer of an agency shall accept, solicit, or direct a contribution of more than two hundred fifty dollars ($250) from any party, or his or her agent, or from any participant, or his or her agent, while a proceeding involving a license, permit, or other entitlement for use is pending before the agency and for three months following the date a final decision is rendered in the proceeding if the officer knows or has reason to know that the participant has a financial interest, as that term is used in Article 1 (commencing with Section 87100) of Chapter 7. This prohibition shall apply regardless of whether the officer accepts, solicits, or directs the contribution for himself or herself, or on behalf of any other officer, or on behalf of any candidate for office or on behalf of any committee.” Emphasis added. See electronic contribution solicitation below.)
A Message from Sara Wan
Pedro Nava is running for California Attorney General and he needs our help. The June Primary is quickly approaching and we must act now.
Pedro is our friend and a true environmental champion. After eight years on the Coastal Commission and three terms in the State Assembly, he has proven himself to be one of the strongest and most effective environmental leaders in California.
Pedro received the sole Sierra Club California endorsement. Pedro has the best environmental record of all the Attorney General candidates and we can count on him to continue that commitment. As a Legislator, Pedro successfully fought the gun lobby to pass legislation banning the use of lead ammunition in Condor country, established a comprehensive oil spill prevention program, and strengthened watershed protection.
Last year, Pedro led a coalition of over 100 environmental organizations to block a Texas-based oil company from opening up our coast to the first dirty and dangerous drilling in California Sanctuary Act waters in more than 40 years. He also introduced The Oil Industry Fair Share Act, which will establish an oil severance tax on each barrel of crude oil pumped by companies in California, producing more money for vital state programs.
As your next Attorney General, Pedro will be the chief law enforcement officer in California with the authority to punish polluters and those who want to spoil our precious coast. A vote for Pedro is a vote to protect our environment.
We have worked side by side with Pedro and witnessed his dedication to improving California’s environment and protecting it for future generations. Today, we have the opportunity to elect an Attorney General who will make environmental protection a priority. But he cannot become our Attorney General without your help. Join us and other environmental leaders and organizations in supporting Pedro.
