We’re less than a week from the election. Clean Water Staff across the country will be blogging about what it means nationally and locally. Check back for more.
In 2010, the environment lost one of its biggest champions in Harrisburg, Dave Levdansky, by a mere 150 votes. During Dave’s years representing the 39th district in western Pennsylvania he fought for our health, safety, and environment through efforts like protecting our state forests from natural gas drilling and passing the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act. This year we have the opportunity to send Dave back to Harrisburg.
Over the past 2 years, Governor Tom Corbett and his anti-environment, pro- big business legislature have dramatically increased favors and handouts for those who profit from gas drilling in our state while making unacceptable cuts to Department of Environmental Protection. If the current leadership in Harrisburg is allowed to continue its agenda, there will be even more damage done to our natural resource and our water supplies will be at more risk than any time in recent history.
Clean Water Action has endorsed Dave Levdansky in the 39th state house district because he is a proven environmental leader. An avid outdoorsman, Dave appreciates the natural beauty of our Commonwealth and will fight to protect it from the negative effects of fracking – his opponent has already shown he won’t. Incumbent Rick Saccone has consistently voted to support the agenda of Governor Tom Corbett and the gas drilling companies. He received an embarassing 23% on Clean Water Action’s Marcellus Shale Scorecard. The evidence is clear, we need someone in Harrisburg who will fight for us.
On Tuesday, November 6th, please vote for Dave Levdansky in the 39th state house district – our environment in Pennsylvania depends on it.
