Wednesday, September 5, 2018

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

“As a journalist and community advocate, Mona Shand has demonstrated her willingness and ability to lead on critical Great Lakes issues," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Mona Shand understands that we must act to protect our Great Lakes by rebuilding our water infrastructure, ending Nestle’s water bottling loophole, and decommissioning the outdated and unnecessary Enbridge Line 5 pipeline. We’re confident that in the State House, Mona will be a champion on the issues that matter most to Michigan residents and our Great Lakes,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Through her 14 years as a journalist, Shand has been able to work with environmental experts and gain a thorough understanding of the major environmental issues currently facing Michigan. This experience is part of what propelled her run for State House. For the last five years, Shand served as the Michigan producer and correspondent for Public News Service, covering environmental issues with outlets across the state.

“Mona’s environmental priorities include decommissioning Line 5, repealing harmful bills that were passed by the current legislature, and increasing infrastructure funding to ensure that we can replace every lead service line in Michigan,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign for the 42nd State House district, and look forward to working with her as a legislator. The choice is clear – Mona Shand for Michigan State House.”
