Sierra Club taps new political director
The Sierra Club named a new national political director on Wednesday. The green group tapped Melissa Williams for the slot. She will assume the role in the middle of March. Williams is a former deputy director of the WOMEN VOTE! program at Emily's List, where she headed an independent expenditure program targeting House races. The effort saw 15 of its 17 preferred candidates get elected. “We are thrilled to have Melissa join our team. With her skill, her experience, and her proven record of success, she will make significant contributions to continue the momentum from the clean energy victories we achieved in 2012 and help find new opportunities to build the movement to fix our climate crisis,” Cathy Duvall, Sierra Club director of strategic partnerships, said in a Wednesday statement. Williams also has worked as an outside consultant for the AFL-CIO labor federation, helping it implement a get out the vote campaign and communications strategy. E-Wire
