Food & Water Action, the political arm of the national advocacy group Food & Water Watch, is endorsing State Representative Sara Innamorato in the race for Allegheny County Executive.
The organization has spent the past five years building a strong grassroots presence in the county, working with residents to restrict fracking activities in 25 municipalities and scoring a major victory to ban fracking in county parks.
In 2022, Food & Water Action knocked on tens of thousands of doors and made nearly half a million calls to Allegheny County voters, helping to elect Summer Lee and Chris Deluzio to Congress. The organization has shifted their capacity towards getting Innamorato elected in 2023, having already knocked on nearly 6,000 doors talking to voters about the county executive election.
Food & Water Action Pennsylvania State Director Megan McDonough released the following statement:
“Sara Innamorato has been a champion for working families in Allegheny County. As a state representative, Sara authored the Whole Home Repair Program, and passed this game-changing climate bill into law. She will fight to crack down on the polluters that harm the health of our communities, because she understands that we have the tools we need to keep major sources of pollution away from our homes and schools. Allegheny County deserves a leader who is willing to take on the toughest fights to build safe, healthy communities. Sara Innamorato has proven herself to be exactly that leader.”
