Food & Water Action, the political arm of the national advocacy organization Food & Water Watch, is endorsing Karen Smythe for Senate in the 41st Senate District of New York.
Smythe 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.
“Karen Smythe is the climate leader the Hudson Valley needs and deserves right now to meet the most pressing issue of our time,” said Food & Water Action organizer Emily Skydel. “We need a leader in the 41st District who will put the people of the Hudson Valley ahead of the oil and gas industry. We’re prepared to fight for Karen because we know she’s ready to take the fight to corporate polluters.”
