Clean Water Action Endorses Lora Greene for Michigan’s 106th State House District

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

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

“For too long, elected leaders have been rolling the dice with our most valuable and important natural resource, our water. Lora Greene understands the importance of protecting our water, and standing up for Michigan residents facing water contamination issues," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Lora Greene will stand up for the Great Lakes, work to address water contamination from PFAS and other chemicals, and represent the people of her district, instead of major corporations like Nestle and Enbridge. We’re confident that in the State House, Lora will be a champion for our Great Lakes, and protecting public health,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Greene considers clean and affordable drinking water to be a human right, and providing clean and affordable drinking water to be one of the main responsibilities of government. She is running against incumbent Sue Allor, who voted in her current term to prevent Michigan from establishing any environmental protections stricter than federal minimums. Allor has also failed to support bills introduced by Rep. Winnie Brinks that would help state agencies address PFAS contamination, which has been a known problem in the 106th district for at least the past six years.

“Lora’s environmental priorities include increasing infrastructure funding to ensure that we can replace every lead service line in Michigan, making sure that all Michigan residents have access to clean and affordable drinking water, and decommissioning Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline. This is the kind of leadership we need in Lansing.” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign for the 106th State House district, and look forward to working with her as a legislator. The choice is clear – Lora Greene for Michigan State House.”
