Kathy Manning is committed to safeguarding our environment and combating climate change. She served as a partner at a major law firm for 16 years before starting her own small business. She then led a charitable organization focused on job retraining, mortgage issues, and healthcare.
Manning is opposed to offshore drilling and is committed to investing in renewable energy in North Carolina. In Congress, she will advocate for communities of color who have historically been disproportionately impacted by environmental pollution and injustice.
Manning joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of retiring Representative Mark Walker, who earned a 1% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“In Congress, I’ll fight for clean air and water, and champion clean energy development to create jobs in the 6th District and around the country. I’ll also work to protect communities that are hardest hit by the negative impacts of climate change.”
