LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Barb Anness for the Michigan State House.

“Our state is defined by the Great Lakes, yet today too many Michigan residents do not have access to safe, clean, affordable drinking water. Barb Anness believes that water is a human right and when she is elected she will work to secure safe, clean, affordable drinking water for all Michigan residents," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We need more lawmakers who understand our obligation to protect our water and environment as clearly as Barb does.” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Anness’s environmental priorities include making polluters pay to clean up the contamination they cause, ensuring that everyone has access to safe, clean, affordable drinking water, and increasing funding to create thousands of jobs by updating our water infrastructure.

“Barb Anness clearly understands the environmental issues facing Michigan residents. She has been an outspoken advocate for protecting our water and she will make a great leader and advocate for her constituents in Lansing,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign today and we are excited to begin working with her to protect the Great Lakes and our water.”
