Macomb County Commissioner Veronica Klinefelt is calling for robust new infrastructure investments with a focus on Macomb County’s Lake St. Clair and the Clinton River Watershed.

She says that ensuring Michigan’s beaches and waters are safe will not only help create jobs but also boost tourism.

Klinefelt says she knows how to get this done, pointing to her previous record as a member of the 8 ½ Mile Drain Board, where she says she helped develop a “first-of-its-kind” solution to reduce combined sewage overflow and keep local beaches and waters clean.

The commissioner’s calls echo those of Michigan Governor Whitmer, who has made infrastructure investments a key priority of her administration, spearheading the repair or rebuilding of over 13,000 lane miles of road and 900 bridges during her time in office, supporting approximately 82,000 jobs.

Klinefelt is currently serving her second term on the Macomb County Board of Commissioners, where she represents residents of Eastpointe, Grosse Pointe Shores, St. Clair Shores and Warren.
