Clean Water Action Endorses Bill Saxton for Michigan’s 73rd State House District

LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Bill Saxton for the Michigan House of Representatives.

“Bill Saxton understands that asking Michigan residents to live with contaminated drinking water while state leadership refuses to act is unacceptable,” said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Bill Saxton will be a strong advocate for the people of the 73rd state house district, many of whom are dealing with PFAS contamination currently.  We’re confident that in the State House, Bill will champion environmental issues and fight to ensure that our water contamination issues are being addressed,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Bill Saxton believes that water is a human right, and has been a leader in advocating for the safety of his community’s water supply. In contrast, his opponent voted in favor of a controversial “No Stricter than Federal” bill that would prevent Michigan from having any environmental standards, including drinking water standards for PFAS, that are stricter than the federal minimums.

“Bill’s environmental priorities include finding solutions to increased water contamination issues at the state level, increasing renewable energy to combat climate change, and ensuring that every Michigan resident has clean, affordable drinking water. This is the kind of leadership that we need in Lansing,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse his campaign for the 73rd State House district, and look forward to working with him as a legislator. The choice is clear – Bill Saxton for Michigan State House.”
