Sara Innamorato is running in the 21st district, which is located in Allegheny County.
Sara is a lifelong Pittsburgh-area resident, and believes that we must do more to hold big polluters accountable, ensure clean air and safe drinking water for all communities, and fight climate change.
Sara believes that Pennsylvania must do far more to fight climate change. Pittsburgh has set an ambitious goal of achieving 100 percent clean energy by 2035, and Sara would support that goal for all of Pennsylvania. She recognizes that many communities already feel the impacts of climate change, and that if we invest in increasing their resiliency, we can save money by reducing the cost of storm damages and create jobs. Sara would also fight to hold polluters accountable because too many families have been hurt by the air pollution from chemical manufacturers and cracker plants and water pollution from frackers. Not only would she fight to ensure that the Department of Environmental Protection has the funding it needs to inspect these operations and get them to follow safety laws, she’d also advocate for new funding mechanisms so that families hurt by Big Polluters can get their lives back together.
Sara beat a five-term incumbent in the primary, who received just a 45% on our most recent Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard. We are thrilled that voters in the 21st district now have a better choice to elect in November.
