[Philadelphia, PA] – Today, Conservation Voters of PA endorsed Sara Innamorato for State Representative in Allegheny County’s 21st 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.
“Sara is campaigning on a platform full of pro-environment issues and brings an unparalleled energy to her fight for clean air and water in her community,” said Josh McNeil, Executive Director of Conservation Voters of PA. “She’s a strong supporter of progressive solutions to climate change and we encourage the voters of the 21st district to send her to Harrisburg.”
Ms. Innamorato is a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh who has built her career in the tech industry where she has worked to build public green spaces and help residents understand the importance of energy efficiency. She is a strong advocate for the City of Pittsburgh’s goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2035. She also supports a severance tax and a fully funded and effective Department of Environmental Protection. In the 21st district, Ms. Innamorato has seen firsthand the impacts of pollution and bad environmental policy: flooding from storm water runoff is a persistent issue, Allegheny County maintains some of the worst air quality in the nation, and a local industrial facility operated without permits for almost 20 years while polluting the environment.
Ms. Innamorato said of the endorsement, “I am proud and honored to receive Conservation Voters of PA's endorsement for State Representative. Our commonwealth's natural resources make Pennsylvania a better place for all of us to live. Together, we must protect our region's air and water, and never stop fighting for our environment.”
