Clean Water Action Endorses Kara Hope for Michigan’s 67th State House District

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

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

“Through her experience as an activist and Ingham County Commissioner, Kara Hope has proved that she has what it takes to lead on environmental issues in Lansing," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Kara values our Great Lakes, and has fought for better protections from leaking septic systems in Ingham County, as well as helping to pass a resolution calling on the state to decommission Enbridge’s outdated and unnecessary Line 5 pipeline,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Hope is an attorney and current Ingham County Commissioner, who also serves on the board of the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council. She has been endorsed by outgoing Representative Tom Cochran, who has been a champion on environmental issues in the legislature and is term-limited.

“Kara’s environmental priorities include increasing infrastructure funding to replace every lead service line in Michigan and rebuild our water infrastructure, increasing renewable energy to combat climate change, and stopping Nestle and other corporations from privatizing Great Lakes water. This is the kind of leadership we need in Lansing.” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign for the 67th State House district, and look forward to working with her as a legislator.

The choice is clear – Kara Hope for Michigan State House.”
