Rep. Thompson presents Victoria Brandon the award
Rep. Mike Thompson, CA-05 Victoria Brandon was announced as his 2022 Lake County Climate Crisis Ambassador. Rep. Thompson’s Climate Crisis Champions demonstrate inspiring leadership in combatting the climate crisis currently gripping our communities. They are stewards of the environment and represent the diverse coalition that is pushing for concrete, local climate action to protect our planet for future generations.
“Combatting the climate crisis starts with protecting our environment and mitigating the risk of natural disasters like wildfires. Victoria has been an active member in Lake County environmental groups for decades, leading the charge to protect our public lands and advocating for environmentally-conscience policies,” said Thompson. “I am proud to recognize the work that Victoria has done, including working with me to secure the designation of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument. It’s because of the work by people like Victoria that I am optimistic about our future, and I am proud to honor her today as Lake County’s Climate Crisis Champion.”
Mrs. Brandon is an environmentalist who has worked on many important projects, including the designation Cache Creek as a Wild and Scenic River (in 2005), the adoption of California’s Strategic Framework on Invasive Species in 2010, the development and implementation of Sierra Club policy on Agriculture and Food in 2015, and designation of Berryessa Snow Mountain National Park in 2015.
