Michigan LCV Endorses Glenn Anderson for State Senate

Glenn Anderson has won the endorsement of the Michigan League of Conservation Voters in his bid for re-election to the state's 6th Senate District.
 
Anderson, D-Westland, continues to be on the front lines for defending the Great Lakes and taking care of our natural resources here in Michigan. Throughout his time in office, he has held polluters accountable, sought to ban off-shore drilling in the Great Lakes, and is fully committed to building a green, diverse, and sustainable economy.
 
“Glenn is undoubtedly one of the most prominent leaders on conservation issues in the Legislature. The voters of his district will do themselves, and this state, a great service by re-electing him on Nov. 2,” said Ryan Werder, political director for the Michigan LCV.
 
“Glenn continues to inspire faith in his vision for a clean energy economy and the jobs it will create for his constituents. His record --- especially compared to his opponent who was recently forced to settle a lawsuit with the MDNRE for $35,000 --- is an impressive one that we are eager to see him continue."
 
Anderson added, “I am proud to receive the endorsement of the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. Their recognition of my work to protect the Great Lakes from Big Oil drilling rigs, improve the quality of life for taxpayers, and bring new clean energy jobs to Michigan is proof that the benefits of this work bridges any kind of partisan or ideological differences."
 
Michigan LCV’s endorsement follows a Sept. 20 press release by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment noting their settlement with John Pastor, Anderson’s opponent in the race. Pastor’s company was fined $35,000 for failing to mitigate a 6.26-acre tract of land in Washtenaw County and will now be forced to complete the task that was to have been done in 2007.
