Howard Strauss wins statewide Sierra Club award
Sierra Club California recognized Angeles Chapter member Howard Strauss for his long years of service to the Club at a statewide level.
Earlier this month, Strauss received the 2012 Bob Hattoy Award, which recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to Sierra Club political activities in California.
Strauss served as chair of the Sierra Club California Political Committee from 2003 to 2012 and continues to chair the Southern California Endorsement Review Committee.
By identifying and endorsing pro-environment candidates, the Sierra Club California Political Committee has contributed to making the California Legislature a national leader on environmental protection. (Check out our victories in the most recent election.)
Strauss continues his work to elect environmental candidates as chair of the Los Angeles County Political Committee of the Angeles Chapter.
The Bob Hattoy award was established in 2011 and is named for the former activist and California regional director of the Sierra Club who died in 2007. The first awardee was Susana Reyes, also a member of the Angeles Chapter who currently serves on the Club's national Board of Directors.
The Chapter congratulates Howard Strauss on receiving the award that honors his hard work and activism.
