Lansing, MI — The Michigan League of Conservation Voters (Michigan LCV) today announced an additional eight endorsements for candidates running for the Michigan House of Representatives and Michigan State Senate. 

“Electing leaders who will be environmental stewards and defend our democracy is crucial for Michigan,” said Lisa Wozniak, executive director for Michigan LCV. “Our organization prides itself on endorsing candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to prioritizing clean, safe, affordable drinking water, a healthy climate, and fair access to the ballot for all Michigan voters.”
