Clean Water Action Endorses Tyrone Carter for Michigan’s 6th State House District

Monday, October 5, 2020

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

“Throughout his first term, Tyrone Carter has been a champion on environmental issues," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "He represents a district that has seen the impacts of environmental racism and injustice for far too long, and knows that we have to start holding polluting corporations accountable,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

Representative Carter has co-sponsored bills to make polluters pay for the harm they cause to communities, protect our water as a public resource, and require regulatory authorities to consider the cumulative impacts of air pollution in permitting decisions. For his work in his first year in the State House, Carter received a “positive” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“We need environmental leaders in the State House who are up to the challenge of protecting our water and holding polluters accountable. Tyrone Carter understands how critical these issues are and we know that he can be trusted to take action,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse his campaign today and we are excited to continue working with him to protect the Great Lakes and our water. The choice is clear – Tyrone Carter for Michigan State House.”
