Sierra Club names new Texas chief

The Sierra Club has named Scheleen Walker, a former legislative aide for a Texas House Democrat, as the next director of its Lone Star chapter.
Walker will be only the second director of the environmental group’s Texas chapter, replacing Ken Kramer, who recently retired after 23 years at the helm. Kramer said Walker’s experience gives it “perhaps our strongest state legislative lobby corps ever.”
A Rice University graduate, Walker has worked the past six years for Rep. Donna Howard, an Austin Democrat. She also previously managed the air quality program for Travis County.
