From CDT staff reportsMay 7, 2014 

State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham threw her support behind Katie McGinty, a Democratic candidate for governor, on Wednesday and applauded the former Department of Environmental Protection chief’s stand on the environment.

McGinty was in State College for a campaign stop. Other Democrats battling for the ballot spot opposite incumbent Republican Tom Corbett are state Treasurer Rob McCord, U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and York businessman Tom Wolf.

Goreham said she supports McGinty’s pledge to restore education funding and generate jobs through clean-energy resources.

“She understands the importance of protecting our water resources from reckless use and she effectively regulated the natural gas industry,” Goreham said in a release from McGinty’s campaign. “Katie knows that the economic health of our state requires good public education and creating jobs through investment in clean energy.”

“It is an honor to have the endorsement of Mayor Elizabeth Goreham,” McGinty said. “She is a great civic leader who shares my vision of Pennsylvania.”
