Monday, September 17, 2018

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

“Sheryl Kennedy understands that access to clean, affordable drinking water is a human right, and as a State House Representative will take action to ensure that all Michigan residents have access to clean, affordable drinking water," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We need representatives in Lansing who will work to make sure that state government follows through with funding to replace lead service lines, and address our crumbling water infrastructure across Michigan,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

As a teacher and public-school administrator, Sheryl Kennedy takes pride in instilling environmental values and practices in her students. She plans on taking those values to the State House, and advocating for responsible environmental policies that will protect the Great Lakes and public health for future generations.

“Michigan has a unique responsibility to protect our Great Lakes, which contain 21% of the world’s fresh surface water. Sheryl Kennedy will work to stop Nestle and other major corporations from taking our water, and help restore transparency and accountability to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. 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 48th State House district and look forward to working with her as a legislator. The choice is clear – Sheryl Kennedy for Michigan State House.”
