Greg Vitali for State Representative, 166th State Assembly District
Delaware County Dems from the 166th unanimously endorsed Greg for re-election to a post he has filled since 1992. Greg is widely known as an unyielding advocate for environmental protection, particularly in relation to the effects of natural gas drilling in PA. As a member of the state assembly, however, Greg also prides himself on being the legislator who reads the fine print in Republican legislation, finds the poison pill buried in the details, and alerts colleagues to the hidden flaws. Vitali, age 61, was born in Havertown, graduated from Saint Joseph’s Preparatory School in 1974, earned a B.S. in Economics from Villanova University in 1978, and a Villanova law degree in 1981. As a state legislator, Vitali has supported a severance tax on natural gas drilling in PA., but opposed 2017’s (failed) tax proposal because it limited the state’s ability to regulate the natural gas industry. He has proposed legislation to prohibit further leasing of state forest land for drilling and called for full restoration of budget cuts to the PA. Department of Environmental Protection.
