Rep. Summer Lee
Rep. Summer Lee is running for re-election to the State House in Allegheny County’s 34th district. She earned a 100% on the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard.
A member of the Climate Caucus, Rep. Lee has been a champion for issues like access to clean air and water and putting a stop to fracking. As a lifelong resident of the 34th district, Rep. Lee has been a tireless advocate for communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the pollution from dozens of sources, including power plants, chemical manufacturing, and petrochemical facilities.
During her first term, she has stood up for our environment by voting and speaking out against bills that would give away billions of dollars in tax credits to the petrochemical industry and take away decision-making power from scientists whose environmental protections keep us safe, and give it to politicians funded by the extraction industry.
Rep. Lee is facing a tough primary challenge from an opponent with ties to the gas industry. We urge voters in the 34th district to re-elect Rep. Summer Lee, a true environmental champion.
