My record as a strong steward of California's environment is well known. Throughout my public career, I have led on issue after issue, making sure that we leave a better environment to our children and that we enact sustainable policies to protect our land and oceans well into the future.
I successfully fought the big oil companies, forcing them to clean up Santa Monica's polluted wells. I helped clean up Santa Monica Bay, built and restored our great parks and mountains, protected our ocean and coast and made Santa Monica into an internationally respected green city, which recently earned us the 2012 Siemens Sustainable Community Award.
In Sacramento, I will bring these ideas and experiences and lead a broad coalition to make California the nation's leading green state.
