RICHMOND, VIRGINIA - Yesterday, U.S. Senator Mark Warner voted for cloture on the nomination of former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, effectively helping advance Tillerson’s confirmation.
Kate Addleson, Director of the Sierra Club Virginia Chapter, Released the Following Statement in Response:
“Rex Tillerson is an unacceptable candidate for Secretary of State. While CEO of Exxon, he knowingly covered up the reality of climate change, showing his willingness to put his company's profits over people's health and safety.
