Clean Water Action Endorses Debbie Stabenow for US Senate
LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Debbie Stabenow for the United States Senate.
“From ensuring funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to standing up against the Trump administration’s dirty water agenda, Debbie Stabenow has been a true fighter for our Great Lakes," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We know that Senator Stabenow will continue to stand up to corporate polluters and advocate for our water in Michigan during her next term,” concluded Brady-Enerson.
Throughout her career as an elected official, Senator Stabenow has been a leader on environmental issues. She authored the first ever ban on oil and gas drilling in the Great Lakes, worked on legislation to keep Asian Carp and other invasive species out of the Great Lakes, and was among the first US Senators to stand against the Trump administration’s dirty water agenda and call for the resignation of Scott Pruitt from the EPA.
“Senator Stabenow understands the importance of protecting the Great Lakes and ensuring that Michigan residents have clean, affordable drinking water. She has a proven track record of standing up to corporate polluters and advocating on behalf of our Great Lakes,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her re-election campaign and look forward to continuing to work with her as a senator. On November 6th, the choice is clear – Debbie Stabenow for United States Senate.”
