Clean Water Action Endorses Elissa Slotkin for Congress

LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Elissa Slotkin for Michigan’s 8th Congressional District.

“Elissa Slotkin is a pragmatic, thoughtful leader. In her first term, she has proven her commitment to protecting our Great Lakes, combating climate change, and pushing back against the Trump Administration’s anti-environment agenda,” said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We know that Representative Slotkin will continue standing up for her constituents  by fighting for our water and Great Lakes.”

Representative Slotkin continues to be an outspoken advocate for the Great Lakes and our water resources by voting in support of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding and pushing back against Trump’s dirty water budget. Her work on PFAS helped to ensure that funding was included in the National Defense Authorization Act to address PFAS contamination on military bases in Michigan and across the country.

“Congresswoman Slotkin is a champion for our Great Lakes and we trust that she will continue to strongly advocate for our environment and precious water resources,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign and look forward to continuing to work with her in 2021 and beyond. On November 3rd, a vote for Congresswoman Slotkin is a vote for our Great Lakes.”
