President Trump’s continued rollback of federal safeguards means we must look more toward local leaders to provide needed protections for our health and environment.

Clean Water Action has endorsed in the Democratic Primary: Bill Peduto for Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh; Ashleigh Deemer for Pittsburgh City Council, District 4; and Dan Gilman, Pittsburgh City Council, District 8.
