“The health of our communities and the strength of our economy depend on the fundamentals of clean air, safe water, and nutritious food. Every Michigander deserves the opportunity to be successful, starting with their health. That means protecting the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil in which we grow.” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, 2019
As Governor Whitmer works to address Michigan’s significant water problems and threats to our Great Lakes and public lands, we will continue to hold her and her administration accountable through this tool — “How Green is Your Governor?”
Michigan LCV’s “How Green is Your Governor” tool tracks and grades all of the actions of Governor Whitmer, her administration and the statewide departments she directs as decisions are made on issues that are vital to protecting our environment, re-energizing our economy, and moving Michigan forward. Monitoring the Governor is vital to assuring the administration is held accountable for protecting clean air and water, our public health, and our natural resources.
To view report cards prior to 2019, please reference our Gubernatorial Report Cards, which compile all actions we’ve tracked and scored and provide overall grades for the Governor every two years.
