Clean Water Action Endorses Mary Lindemann
In Hotly Contested State House District 69 Democratic Primary Election

EAST LANSING, MI—Clean Water Action, Michigan's largest grassroots environmental organization, announced today its endorsement of Mary Lindemann in the hotly contested state House District 69 Democratic primary election on August 8.  The district includes East Lansing and Meridian Township.

 “The Great Lakes make Michigan great," said David Holtz, Michigan Director of Clean Water Action. "They are too important to leave in the hands of politicians who may not have the same understanding as Mary Lindemann that they are ours to enjoy and protect.  Mary is clearly the candidate who is most concerned with the Great Lakes and protecting Michigan’s waters.  She has dedicated her life to protecting our environment. As a governmental relations consultant, she fought at our side in the fight to keep Great Lakes waters in Michigan and against diversions. There is no question that Mary is the best choice for those that are concerned about Michigan's lakes, rivers, streams and drinking water.”

Mary Lindemann is a long-time East Lansing resident. She has worked as a teacher, social worker, legislative aide and government relations officer.

Clean Water Action is a national citizens' organization working for clean, safe and affordable water, prevention of health-threatening pollution, creation of environmentally-safe jobs and businesses and empowerment of people to make democracy work.  Clean Water Action, with 177,000 Michigan members,  has offices in East Lansing, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Macomb County.

More than 5,000 Clean Water Action members reside in state House District 69.
