Southern Alliance for Clean Energy Action Fund (SACE Action Fund), the political arm of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), is a non-partisan, non-profit (c4) organization striving to make clean energy solutions to climate change a top priority for our region’s elected leaders. SACE Action Fund engages in public education, legislative action and electoral accountability here in the Southeast.
Why Elections Matter
There will be many important electoral contests this year, but few races have the potential to impact climate and clean energy policy more than the 2014 Florida gubernatorial election where there are very stark contrasts between two of the leading contenders for governor: Rick Scott (R) and Charlie Crist (D).
There is an urgent need to address climate change impacts and unlock our country’s largest untapped renewable energy market and this election could be a deciding factor in both for Florida and the region. In the months ahead, it will be critical for Floridians to pay attention and get involved in this race, to press each of the gubernatorial candidates to clearly lay out plans that address climate change.
Citizens must boldly ask the candidates, ‘what’s your plan, governor?‘
What’s your plan to address climate change? What’s your plan to unlock jobs in clean energy? What’s your plan to make the Sunshine State a leader in solar energy?
Candidates have been busy raising money and making public appearances; it’s time for voters to get busy demanding accountability on climate change and clean energy solutions.
