America belongs to all of us. Our area’s agricultural heritage keeps our community strong and prosperous. Fracked gas pipelines threaten our land and water just so a few oil and gas executives can get a little richer. I stand in opposition to the construction of the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline. The federal government should not have the power to grant eminent domain for corporate gain. We need to overhaul the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and make sure that it works on behalf of the people, not fossil fuel billionaires.
We must invest in clean energy infrastructure that creates good jobs and safeguards our planet. In Lancaster, I have developed award-winning programs and advocacy to push the private sector toward a more sustainable future. If elected to Congress, I will co-sponsor the 100×50 Act to ensure a transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050 and invest in communities on the frontlines of poverty and pollution.
I will oppose subsidizing big oil and gas corporations who threaten our health and homes while driving us into climate catastrophe.
I will join progressives in calling on the DOJ to investigate Exxon and other major fossil fuel corporations for violating the RICO Act and intentionally deceiving the public about the dangers of climate change for decades.
