Clean Water Action Endorses Julie Brixie for Michigan’s 69th State House District

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

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

“Julie Brixie is a diligent lawmaker who understands the challenges facing our water resources, understands our current budget constraints, and is ready to take the necessary action to address these problems," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "She knows that water is our most valuable natural resource and can be trusted to continue working to protect our water and environment,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Before election to the State House, Brixie got hands on experience as an environmental toxicologist, working on contaminated site cleanups across Michigan. Her work on contaminated site cleanup motivated her to continue public service and she was elected as a Meridian Township Trustee before serving three terms as Meridian Township Treasurer. For her work in her first year in the State House, Brixie received a “positive” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“Few people understand the importance of holding polluters accountable as well as someone who has actual hands on experience working on contaminated site cleanup. Representative Brixie is both brilliant and motivated to protect our natural resources,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign today and we are excited to continue working with her to protect our most precious natural resource. The choice is clear – Julie Brixie for Michigan State House.”
