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


“With increasing concerns about both our water and the impacts of climate change, we need more environmental champions in the State House. Christopher Slat knows that we have to address these issues now, and will put in the work to protect our water," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "Chris understands the urgency of holding polluting corporations accountable and protecting our water,” concluded Brady-Enerson.


Slat’s environmental priorities include expanding the bottle bill to cover non-carbonated beverages, passing polluter pay laws, and fighting PFAS contamination. His opponent on the other hand, received a “negative” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“Christopher Slat can be trusted to put his constituents and the water that we all rely on first. We can count on him to be a champion for the Great Lakes in the Michigan State House,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse his campaign today and we look forward to working with him to protect the Great Lakes and our water. The choice is clear – Christopher Slat for Michigan State House.”
