Lansing, MI — The Michigan League of Conservation Voters (Michigan LCV) today announced their endorsement of Dana Nessel for Michigan attorney general.

“Dana Nessel is a lawyer for the people and will continue to fight to protect the health of all Michiganders and this great state we inhabit,” said Lisa Wozniak, executive director of Michigan LCV. “This November clean water and democracy are on the ballot, and Dana Nessel is the only candidate for attorney general who will prioritize both.”

In her tenure as Attorney General, Nessel has fought for the protection of Michigan’s air, land, water, public health and demcoracy with fervor. Just a few of her accomplishments to-date include:

  • Protecting our air and water by filing and winning lawsuits to hold big polluters accountable for PFAS pollution cleanup costs, among other lawsuits for air pollution and methane gas emissions 
  • Fighting to shut down Line 5 with a monumental lawsuit to decommission the aging pipeline in June 2019
  • Holding utility companies accountable by intervening at the Michigan Public Service Commission to successfully push back on multiple utility rate hike requests, and hosting a power outage listening tour for Michiganders to voice their concerns about public utilities
