Rep. Emily Kinkead

State Representative Emily Kinkead is running for re-election to the State House in the 20th district, representing part of Allegheny County.

Rep. Kinkead has been active with the Women in the Law Division of the Allegheny County Bar Association and Scenic Pittsburgh, which works to preserve scenic areas to promote tourism and protect the environment, and she is a member of the Climate Caucus

The 20th district is one of many in the Southwestern part of the state hard hit by landslides that are a direct result of increased severe weather from climate change. Rep. Kinkead was first elected in 2020 and hit the ground running in 2021 to combat climate change when she introduced a bill to reduce pollution emissions from the electric power sector by 90% by 2040. She also secured a substantial grant to create rain gardens at the St. John’s Hospital to manage stormwater runoff for a nearly 3-acre area.

Representative Emily Kinkead is facing a primary challenge. We urge voters to re-elect Rep. Emily Kinkead so she can continue to fight in Harrisburg for clean energy for all and to mitigate the effects of climate change across the Commonwealth.
