NWF Action Fund Endorses Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick for Re-Election

An Independent Voice for Protecting Pennsylvania's Wildlife and Natural Resources

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick for re-election in Pennsylvania's 8th Congressional district. Rep. Fitzpatrick has stood out as an independent voice for protecting Pennsylvania's wildlife and natural resources.

Sue Brown, executive director of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund, said today:

"Michael Fitzpatrick has a record of strong leadership and votes to protect wilderness, public lands and the people and wildlife that depend on them. Rep. Fitzpatrick shares our belief that protecting America's outdoor heritage and our clean air and water aren't partisan issues. They're deeply held mainstream values for which there need to be pro-conservation voices in both parties.

"The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund applauds Representative Fitzpatrick's leadership in defending the Endangered Species Act and protecting and restoring the Susquehanna River Basin. He has not only fought to protect wildlife and open space in Pennsylvania but across the country including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

"We need bipartisan leadership on both sides of the aisle if we're to achieve a safer and cleaner environment for our children and future generations. Rep. Fitzpatrick has a demonstrated track record of pragmatic leadership on conservation issues and is well positioned to help tackle challenges ranging from climate change to providing opportunities for young people to get outside and connect with nature."
