Clean Water Action Endorses Jim Haadsma for Michigan’s 62nd State House District

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

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

“Coming from the district that was most impacted by the Kalamazoo oil spill, Jim Haadsma understands the importance of holding polluters accountable," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "He understands what is at stake when state authorities make decisions based on what is best for the wealthy and corporations instead of their constituents,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

During his first term in Lansing, Representative Haadsma served on the House Energy Committee, and co-sponsored bills to repeal Michigan’s No Stricter Than Federal law and strengthen protections for public water resources. For his work in his first year in the State House, Haadsma received a “positive” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“For Michigan to be a successful state moving forward, we have to start holding corporate polluters accountable and we have to create real solutions to the climate crisis that would transform our energy infrastructure and create thousands of green jobs – Jim Haadsma understands that and is ready to get the job done,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse his campaign today and we are excited to continue working with him to protect the Great Lakes and our water. The choice is clear – Jim Haadsma for Michigan State House.”
