Clean Water Action Endorses Julia Pulver for Michigan’s 15th State Senate District

LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Julia Pulver for the Michigan State Senate.

“As a nurse, Julia has seen the effects of lax environmental laws on public health first hand," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "She understands the necessity of protecting our lakes, rivers, and streams, and ensuring that every Michigan resident has access to affordable and clean drinking water,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

In the general election, Pulver will be facing current State House Representative Jim Runestad. Pulver plans to prioritize replacing lead service lines across the state and rebuilding our water infrastructure. Her opponent on the other hand voted in favor of bills that would prohibit Michigan from having any environmental protections stricter than federal minimums, give corporations oversight of the Department of Environmental Quality, and reduce ballast water standards that would have allowed more invasive species easier access to the Great Lakes.

“With climate change continuing to progress, drinking water contamination issues across the state, and the looming threat of Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline, there has never been a more critical time to elect lawmakers who value protecting the Great Lakes. Our state is defined by water, and we know that Julia Pulver will stand with us to protect our water and public health,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign for the 15th State Senate district and look forward to working with her as a senator. The choice is clear – Julia Pulver for Michigan State Senate.”


Clean Water Action is Michigan’s largest grassroots conservation group with over 250,000 members across the state. Through direct advocacy and education they organize Michigan residents to protect the Great Lakes and our water resources. Learn more at
