Jess King has been an important community leader in Pennsylvania for the past 20 years, fighting for working people. For the past eight years she has been executive director of Assets, an organization that supports small businesses, including many small farmers, to build a more vibrant local economy. She is currently a local economy fellow with the national Business Alliance for Local Living Economies.
Jess stands for farms not fracking:
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.
Why so few candidates in Pennsylvania? There were some great candidates we endorsed in the Pennsylvania primaries who unfortunately lost their races. And, we’re sure we missed some. If we did, please send us an email at info[at]citizensregenerationlobby.org.
