Sierra Club Endorses Kathi Cozzone for Re-Election as Chester County Commissioner
Democratic Running Mate Bill Scott Also Endorsed to Join Board of Commissioners

The Sierra Club of Southeastern PA has endorsed Kathi Cozzone for County Commissioner. Kathi also earned the Sierra Club endorsement in her successful runs for Commissioner in 2007 and 2011. The Sierra Club has also endorsed West Chester Borough Councilman Bill Scott, Kathi’s Democratic teammate

“I am thrilled to accept the endorsement of the Sierra Club, one of our nation’s foremost environmental advocacy groups,” said Cozzone. “During my time as Commissioner, it has been a priority for me for the County to take whatever actions it can to protect our environment. We have taken steps to reduce the carbon footprint of County operations. We have aggressively preserved open space and promoted urban center development and public transportation options to reduce suburban sprawl – a phenomenon that taxes our resources and contributes to faster climate change. More recently, I have led the charge to give residents of our County a voice on upcoming pipeline projects proposed for their communities.

“The Sierra Club has endorsed both members of the Democratic Team, Bill Scott and me, because they know we will govern with the future well-being of our children and grandchildren in mind. Climate change is the seminal issue of the 21st century. I find it disturbing that the current leader in the Republican Presidential Primary polls is an avowed climate change denier, and that most of his challengers are deniers as well. I applaud groups like the Sierra Club who trust in science and fight tirelessly against this willful ignorance to preserve our planet, and I am honored to stand with them and with Bill in that struggle.”

Kathi Cozzone is in her second term as Chester County Commissioner. Before her election in 2007, Kathi spent 20 years in various corporate finance roles. As Commissioner, she successfully brought her business experience to County government by initiating in her first year an award-winning strategic plan that has helped the County meet programmatic goals while remaining fiscally responsible. Since then, she has focused on many issues including environmental protection, public safety and job creation. Kathi lives in Exton, PA with her husband Victor and their son Victor, a student at Lionville Middle School in the Downingtown Area School District
