[Philadelphia, PA] – Today, Conservation Voters of PA endorsed Danielle Friel Otten for State Representative in Chester County’s 155th District. Conservation Voters of PA represents thousands of individuals in the Commonwealth who are committed to clean air, land, energy, and water, and prepared to vote for candidates who reflect those values. 

“Danielle embodies all of the values we look for in pro-environment candidates. She is a self-motivated and passionate advocate for clean water in her own backyard and will bring real change to Harrisburg,” said Josh McNeil, Executive Director of Conservation Voters of PA. “Danielle will not only make environmental protection a top priority when elected, but she has firsthand experience in enacting lasting change.”

In 2017, Ms. Friel Otten co-founded the Uwchlan Safety Coalition when she found out that the Mariner East II pipeline was going to cut through the yard where her children play. She successfully organized hundreds of local citizens to advocate for pipeline safety and succeeded in electing township leaders who will serve as key watchdogs for pipeline development. Ms. Friel Otten is a mother, businesswoman, and community leader who is committed to fighting for the health and welfare of the residents and landscapes in the 155th District. 

Ms. Friel Otten said of the endorsement, “I am so grateful for partners like Conservation Voters of PA who understand that real change and lasting progress happen by building a coalition of environmentally minded legislators and activating citizens who will stand up together to challenge polluters and oil, gas and industry lobbyists who work to take our voice away in Harrisburg. I am committed to being a champion for clean air, clean water and protection of Pennsylvania’s precious land and resources, and proud to stand with Conservation Voters of PA.”
