COASTAL BEND SIERRA CLUB MEETING November 2011
Instead of holding the regular noon monthly planning meeting on Tuesday, November 15,
the Coastal Bend Sierra Club (CBSC) met from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Communication Workers
of America (CWA) building at 1210 S. Staples St.
The purpose of the meeting with CWA and others interested in learning about efforts to
bring green jobs to Texas and the Coastal Bend area was to hear presentations about
ongoing efforts to achieve this goal.
The Lone Star Sierra Club has joined other environmental groups and labor unions in
forming the Texas BlueGreen Apollo Program, which is a coalition headed by Dave Cortez of
Austin. Dave, Hal Suter (President of Lone Star Sierra), and Claudia Yanez (Austin CWA
Local 6132 representative), joined in speaking to those attending.
Their presentation included background information on the coalitions formative
phase as well as its strategies for the next phase of moving forward through provisions in
the American Jobs Act. The categories of energy efficiency and high-speed internet are
currently receiving special emphasis.
