Food & Water Action Endorses Jen Metzger for NY State Senate

September 16, 2020


For Immediate Release

Food & Water Action, the political arm of the national advocacy organization Food & Water Watch, is endorsing Jen Metzger for Senate in the 42nd District.

Metzger won the endorsement based on her firm commitment to moving New York to 100% renewable energy, stopping fossil fuel infrastructure projects, and protecting publicly-owned water systems from corporate takeover.

“Jen Metzger is a proven climate leader with a track record of real accomplishments in the fight to move off fossil fuels to renewable energy,” said Food & Water Action organizer Emily Skydel. “Metzger helped win New York’s ban on fracking in 2014, and as a newly elected state senator she was the leader this year in making that ban the law.  Metzger has been a true champion in the fight against dirty fossil fuel infrastructure, helping stop the Pilgrim Pipelines and opposing the Danskammer power plant. Food & Water Action enthusiastically endorses Metzger’s re-election campaign.”
