Three of the state’s leading environmental organizations are asking voters to support Julian Cyr for State Senate in the Cape and Islands District. The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund (ELM AF), Massachusetts Sierra Club and Massachusetts Clean Water Action have all endorsed Cyr, a credit to his commitment to environmental issues and his passion for public service. 

"We are proud to endorse Julian because he understands the importance of our state investing in clean energy and protecting our coastal beaches, and because of his focus on saving the region's sole source aquifer to create jobs and build healthier communities,” stated Joe O’Brien, Political Director of the ELM AF.“He has a proven record of leadership advocating for the environment and improving public health.” 

Massachusetts Sierra Club Executive Director, Emily Norton, stated, “Massachusetts Sierra Club has endorsed Julian Cyr because of his support for investments in renewable energy generation and his commitment to seeking innovative ways to combat climate change.”  

“Julian Cyr is the candidate to protect clean drinking water, accelerate our clean energy transition and protect public health," said Joel Wool, Advocate for Energy & Environment for Clean Water Action. "We are proud to support him this November."

Julian Cyr has broad experience in public policy, health advocacy, organizing, and social justice. Most recently, he served as Director of Policy and Regulatory Affairs for Environmental Health at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.  

Julian is deeply committed to protecting the land, air and water of his district and the Commonwealth. Julian stood up to Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station to successfully get the utility to pay for potassium iodide pills for our towns. He is ready to push for immediate closure of the corroding plant and ensure it is decommissioned safely and swiftly.
