The Sierra Club of New Jersey backed Democratic Somerset County Freeholder Candidate Melonie Marano Monday.

“I am very honored to be endorsed for Somerset County Freeholder by the New Jersey Sierra Club, environmental leaders and protectors who work for everyone’s benefit,” Marano said. “At a time when our world is reaching a tipping point, and my opponent’s party denies climate change is real, we have to work fast to protect our families, our property and our communities.”

Marano face incumbent Freeholder Pat Walsh, who is the only freeholder up for re-election this year.

Democrats won two seats on the five-member freeholder board last year. If they win this year, they’ll secure a majority for at least two years.

“I will be a champion for renewable energy installation, water quality protection, responsible and poison free park management, and ensuring Somerset County does a better job protecting the future of our families and our economic base,” Marano said. “We’re one vote away from making a real difference in our world instead of just saying the right words but doing nothing.”
