“Lt.

The stakes could not be higher for climate and environmental justice.”

“Conservation Voters Pennsylvania has proudly supported John Fetterman since his successful run for Lieutenant Governor in 2018,” said Conservation Pennsylvania Political Director Katie Blume. “He has always prioritized our communities over profits and special interests and we know he will fight hard to grow our clean energy economy, create good-paying jobs, and achieve environmental justice for all Pennsylvanians.” 

“Thank you so much to the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund for your endorsement. I have never taken a dime from the fossil fuel industry, and I never will,” said Lt.

It is an honor to have your support, and together we will eliminate the filibuster and deal with climate change when I am elected as Pennsylvania’s next U.S. Senator.”

In 2005, John Fetterman was elected as Mayor of Braddock where he led the economic revitalization of the city and worked to make green businesses and programs a central focus of that effort. As mayor, he launched a green-jobs summer program for youth, created a green space for the community, and helped to create green jobs by bringing an alternative energy company to town. He was elected lieutenant governor in 2018 and is committed to fighting for climate, justice, jobs, and democracy. Lt. Gov. Fetterman is a strong advocate for climate change, and has testified in front of Congress on behalf of climate change bills.
