Mary Gay Scanlon is dedicated to building a sustainable future.
Scanlon previously served as a judicial clerk for the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and as a co-chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Commission on Children at Risk. From 2007 to 2015 she served on the Wallingford Swarthmore School Board, where she worked on school sustainability efforts.
As a representative, Scanlon will focus on making the U.S. a leader in climate action, protecting the air we breathe and the water we drink, eliminating subsidies for Big Oil, and building a clean energy economy. She will also advocate for rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement.
Scanlon joins the U.S. House to represent the newly-drawn 5th district.
In her own words:
“Our greatest obligation is to leave the world better for our children, and the generations that follow. No child deserves to live in a world without breathable air, drinkable water, and green spaces to play in. We need to move forward, not back — and that starts by making a commitment to address the issues plaguing our environment; issues that have been ignored for far too long.”
