On Saturday, October 13th, Paul Drucker, Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 157th District held an event at Black Rock Sanctuary in Phoenixville to address the environmental concerns facing Pennsylvania.
The event included guest speakers Josh McNeil, Executive Director for Conservation Voters of PA, Joe Nye, from Clean Water Action of PA and Peter Goodman, from Trout Unlimited. Mr. McNeil, Mr. Nye and Mr Goodman spoke about the need to elect environmental advocates, like Paul Drucker, to the PA House of Representatives because of the need for strong environmental protection, particularly in light of the explosion of natural gas drilling in Pennsylvania. Mr. Drucker has been endorsed by Conservation Voters of PA, Clean Water Action, Sierra Club and Penn Environment because of his strong record on environmental issues.
“I am thrilled that I am receiving such strong support from my community. The residents of the 157th value environmental protection. I share their values, and I am proud of my record as an advocate for the environment.
The Act 13 “Impact Fee,” supported by my opponent, does not deal with the real impact of Marcellus gas drilling. As a Representative, I supported legislation that would have made sure we protect our land, air and water while maximizing Pennsylvania’s economic benefit from this new industry. That was the fair and responsible approach then, and it still is today. Our environment is the legacy we will leave to our children and grandchildren. We must make sure that it is clean, safe and healthy,” said Drucker
