[Philadelphia, PA] – Today, Conservation Voters of PA endorsed Mike Zabel (D) for State Representative in Delaware County’s 163rd 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.

“The 163rd district deserves a State Representative who cares about clean air, land, and water,” said Caren Glotfelty, Board Chair of Conservation Voters of PA. “If elected, I know that Mike will stand up for the rights of his constituents, and against polluters.”

Mr. Zabel is a lifelong resident of Delaware County and an attorney currently working in private practice. Previously, Mr. Zabel worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia and a teacher. He is running on a platform that includes creating more green space in the 163rd, strengthening and fully funding the Department of Environmental Protection, and enacting a fair severance tax.  His opponent has just a 35 percent lifetime score on our 2017/2018 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard.

Mr. Zabel said of the endorsement, “The 163rd district deserves a representative who will protect our environment for our children and children’s children. I’m honored to be endorsed by Conservation Voters of Pennsylvania, and I fully support their mission.”
