Lombardi Signs America’s Energy Independence Pledge America Must Be Energy Independent
Manhattan, IL/March 31, 2022… Today, Jack Lombardi, Republican Congressional candidate for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District signed the America’s Energy Independence Pledge. The pledge calls for America to be free of overseas energy dependence by utilizing America’s abundant natural gas supplies which are also environmentally friendly. Lombardi joins such signers as Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, U.S. Senators Tim Scott, Joni Ernst, and numerous other elected officials across the nation. Lombardi is the first Illinois candidate to sign the pledge.
“It is essential that America become energy independent as recent events have demonstrated,” said Jack Lombardi. “The smart and clean way to do this is by utilizing our natural gas supplies. This will lower energy costs, create jobs, and is good for our environment. That is why I am proudly signing the America’s Energy Independence Pledge.”
The pledge reads:
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are the inalienable Rights in our Declaration of Independence. We fought for and secured these Rights and grew a nation bountiful in natural resources. The ingenuity and hard work of the American people have brought us to another self-evident truth: Energy Independence is within our grasp.
Affordable, clean, and abundant energy is the birthright of every American.
These domestic treasures should benefit the daily lives of our people and solidify our security for generations to come. Natural gas makes this possible now, not decades in the future. Its benefits will be felt throughout American society:
Affordable Energy for Our Families. From the jobs created to lower utility bills and cleaner air, affordable energy is fundamental to economic prosperity for all. It is a moral imperative to provide for families who are most vulnerable to increases in their energy budgets.
Clean Energy for Our Environment. We lead the world, by a wide margin, in cutting CO2 emissions. America’s natural gas is the fiscally-sound, reliable and environmentally responsible bridge to our energy future.
Abundant Energy for Our Future. Technology and exploration have guaranteed that America has a continuous 100-year supply of natural gas and the potential for even more.
Domestic Energy for Our Security. The use of domestic natural gas discovered, produced, and refined in the U.S. makes certain America is no longer dependent on rapidly changing global markets and unstable or hostile countries.
We, the undersigned, are committed to achieving the above goals and establishing America’s Energy Independence for the lasting good of our nation and future generations.
