The Allegheny Group of the Sierra Club has endorsed Summer Lee, Democratic candidate for PA House District 34, and Sara Innamorato, Democratic candidate for PA House District 21, for the Primary election May 15, 2018.
Ms. Lee is challenging Democratic Incumbent, Paul Costa, and Ms. Innamorato is challenging Democratic incumbent, Dom Costa. Both candidates are strong advocates for environmental issues. The Pennsylvania League of Conservation Voters environmental score card rating for 2015-16 for Dom Costa is 45pct and for Paul Costa 36pct. Those scores mean that both incumbents opposed good environmental legislation more often than they supported it.
The recent US News report ranks Pennsylvania 45th on the natural environment, 40th on drinking water quality, 41st in low industrial toxins, 47th in low pollution health risk and 40th in urban air quality. These statistics strongly indicate that our current representatives in the state house have not seriously enacted solutions to counteract these hazards to all residents’ health. These two women will.
We strongly encourage all Sierra Club members, your friends, neighbors and relatives, even if you don’t live in their districts, to support their campaigns with your time, talents, and money.
