Monday, July 16, 2018

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

“Through her years of experience in advocating for our Great Lakes and water resources in Michigan, Rachel Hood has shown that she is a true environmental leader", said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Rachel Hood has been a champion on many issues including renewable energy, green infrastructure design, stormwater infrastructure, and advocating for strong policies to protect our Great Lakes.  We’re confident that in the State House, Rachel will champion environmental issues as she always has,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

As Executive Director of the West Michigan Environmental Action Council, Rachel Hood led efforts to incorporate green infrastructure for stormwater capture and water protection through the Vital Streets program in Grand Rapids. She was also a strong advocate for incorporating on-bill financing of energy efficiency investments at the state level. Through her long history as a grassroots activist, Rachel has proved her dedication to fighting for our Great Lakes.

 “Rachel’s environmental priorities include obtaining funding to fix our water infrastructure and remove every lead service line in Michigan, making corporate polluters pay their fair share, decommissioning Line 5, and finding solutions to increased water contamination issues at the state level. This is the kind of leadership that we need to have in Lansing,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign for the 76th State House district, and look forward to working with her as a legislator. The choice is clear – Rachel Hood for Michigan State House.”
