Loeffler & Perdue:
Wrong for Georgia

Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue consistently side with wealthy corporate interests, big polluters, and Donald Trump over Georgia communities. Time after time, they’ve backed harmful legislative and corporate policies at the expense of the health and wellbeing of Georgia families. 

Kelly Loeffler is not with us

Whose side is Loeffler on? Not Georgia’s

Kelly Loeffler was on the board of directors of Georgia Power, the state’s largest utility and a major producer of coal ash. Georgia Power’s coal plants have contaminated groundwater with toxic pollutants, including arsenic, cobalt, and other cancer-causing chemicals. Loeffler was even on its board as the utility pushed to raise rates for consumers to help pay for coal ash cleanup despite its own profits.

In the Senate, Loeffler touted that she is partnering  with the CEO of Georgia Power’s parent company, Southern Company, on energy policy. Loeffler has taken over $13,000 in campaign contributions from Southern Company’s PAC and employees. She’s also accepted $50,000 in campaign contributions from oil and gas interests while supporting Trump’s harmful environmental rollbacks.

David Perdue is not with us

Perdue sides with corporate polluters and Trump, and denies climate change

David Perdue is a climate change denier who has voted three times acknowledging that human-caused climate change is real despite owning a mansion in a beachfront community that is being protected from the rising sea levels.

In the Senate, Perdue has voted with Trump 95% of the time, voting in line with Trump’s anti-environment agenda to block the Clean Power Plan and allow power plants to burn coal waste without complying with clean air rules. He’s also taken nearly $500,000 in campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry.

Jon Ossoff & Raphael Warnock will fight for Georgia families

As natives of Georgia, Ossoff and Warnock understand the importance of listening to communities, standing up to corporate special interests, and fighting for a cleaner, safer, more sustainable Georgia.

From confronting the COVID-19 pandemic to addressing the climate crisis, Ossoff and Warnock will listen to scientists and public health experts, not corporate lobbyists and political hacks.

Low-income and communities of colors are disproportionately impacted by climate change and toxic pollution. Ossoff and Warnock will fight for environmental and economic justice for all communities.
