Food & Water Action, the political arm of the national advocacy organization Food & Water Watch, is endorsing Katie Muth in the race for Pennsylvania’s Senate District 44, which includes parts of Berks, Chester and Montgomery counties.
Muth’s Republican opponent has received thousands of dollars from pipeline corporation Energy Transfer.
Food & Water Action Pennsylvania State Director Megan McDonough released the following statement:
“Senator Muth is a lifelong Pennsylvanian who understands the importance of protecting our communities and families from corruption and corporate greed. As a state senator, Katie has been a true champion in the fight for clean water and a healthy environment for all, and we are proud to endorse her for another term fighting for the people of Pennsylvania.
“We got to know Katie through the work she did in her community to stop Sunoco’s disastrous Mariner East 2 pipelines. She helped lead her neighbors in a fight against a powerful international corporation and the politicians who failed to protect residents from water contamination, sinkholes and property damage. Katie Muth is exactly the kind of fighter we need in Harrisburg.”
