Sierra Club Suspends Local Chapter for 4 Years

The Sierra Club has not officially revealed details of problems within the San Diego organization. However, a recent letter to members cited strife within the chapter and loss of volunteers.

The national Sierra Club Board of Directors voted overwhelmingly Friday to suspend its San Diego chapter for four years because of conflicts within the group.

The suspension, which came on a 13-1 vote with one abstention, will result in the replacement of the San Diego chapter's executive board, national club spokesman Mark Westlund told City News Service.

He said a search committee was established to recommend candidates for a new local executive board, which would be confirmed by national directors of the environmental group.

Wont be a problem Libi, There will always be some project to impede or obstruct, So they can get their face on Tv. Look at what they did to the water conversion plant in north county, !0 years to break ground and now we are so damn short of water they are thinking about rationing and no one else want's to even think about De-Salinization in this area because of them and those like them. What we really need is toilet to tap pushed agressively, It is going to happen the only question is when ! It can work, Just look at Santee lakes aftyer reaching that quality they had to back off and just partially treat their water.
