Two ways to fight Pruitt between now and Wednesday’s vote: First is a list of calls to make and share, and second is an in-person lobbying opportunity at 10am on Wednesday with Moms Clean Air Force.
1. Many thanks to those of you who contributed your inside knowledge to Margot’s call list on Pruitt. The final list is below. Please contact everyone you know in these states and share this action alert widely.
Call these key Senators to tell them you totally oppose Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the EPA. Scott Pruitt has a documented record of placing oil and gas industry profits ahead of the public good. Putting Scott Pruitt in charge of the EPA is like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse. Unfortunately, in this case, the hens are America’s health and the environment. Also, please share this information with your friends and family who live in the states of the Senators listed below, and ask them to contact their Senators ASAP to oppose Scott Pruitt.
