Conservation Voters of PA (CVPA) has endorsed Jordan Yeager for Judge of the Court of Common
Doylestown, PA, March 21, 2019—Conservation Voters of PA (CVPA) has endorsed Jordan Yeager for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in Bucks County. This is the first time in its 10-year history that Conservation Voters of PA has endorsed a candidate for Court of Common Pleas.
“We made this unprecedented endorsement because Jordan Yeager is one of Pennsylvania’s most important environmental champions,” said Josh McNeil, Executive Director of Conservation Voters of PA. “Jordan has probably done more to protect healthy air and clean water for the people of this Commonwealth than any potential judge before him.”
Yeager’s most prominent victory for the environment was the landmark Act 13 victory before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in December 2013, which forced our state government to respect the Commonwealth’s constitutional Environmental Rights Amendment for the first time in history. Yeager also frequently represents residents, community groups, municipalities, and nonprofits in environmental litigation. He was awarded the Florence Neilson Environmental Leadership Award by the Clean Water Fund in 2013 and served as a founding Board member of the Fairshake Environmental Legal Services.
“Protecting our environment is about fairness,” said Yeager. “We share a constitutional right to a healthy environment, and our courts have the power and the responsibility to ensure that right for every Pennsylvanian. I’m honored by this endorsement and appreciate the work that Conservation Voters of PA does to elect officials who put people first.”
