Conservation Voters of PA Endorses Helen Tai for State Representative

Conservation Voters of Pennsylvania (CVPA) on Monday endorsed Helen Tai for State Representative in the 178th district in the May 15 special election. CVPA represents Pennsylvania citizens committed to clean air, land, energy, and water.

“The citizens in District 178 have been represented by a legislator with an abysmal environmental record for too long,” said Josh McNeil, executive director of CVPA. “Helen Tai will continue to be a true environmental champion when elected to the State House. As proven during her years of public service, she is committed to protecting our natural heritage and ensuring that everyone has clean drinking water.”

Tai led the Solebury board of supervisors to unanimously pass a resolution opposing the Penn East Pipeline, and convinced several other municipalities to do the same in 2015. She worked with fellow supervisors, residents, and community partners to address years of environmental violations at New Hope Crushed Stone & Lime, CVPA pointed out. Tai also supports a permanent ban on fracking and fracking-related activities in the Delaware River Basin to protect that drinking water from dangerous fracking chemicals, according to the group.

“I am honored to be endorsed by the Conversation Voters of Pennsylvania, and proud to serve as a steward of our environment, especially at a time when state and federal funding for environmental protections are being cut,” Tai said.
