Clean Water Action Endorses Mari Manoogian for Michigan’s 40th State House District

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

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

“Through her first term in office, Mari Manoogian has been a leader in fighting for policies to protect drinking water and hold polluters accountable," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We can trust Rep. Manoogian to continue this critical work in her second term,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

In 2019 and 2020, Manoogian co-sponsored bills to ensure that everyone has access to safe, clean, and affordable drinking water, to make sure that regulatory authorities consider cumulative impacts of pollution on a community in permitting, and to make polluters pay for clean-up of contaminated sites. For her work in her first year in the State House, Manoogian received a “positive” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“Right now, we need leaders in office who are ready to put in the hard work required to respond to the climate crisis. We have an opportunity today to protect our water and create thousands of jobs by rebuilding our water and energy infrastructure, Mari Manoogian is up to the challenge,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign today and we are excited to continue working with her to protect the Great Lakes and our water. The choice is clear – Mari Manoogian for Michigan State House.”
