Jennifer Conlin Presses for Clean Drinking Water Investment Throughout Michigan

Jennifer Conlin, a small business owner and advocate, has joined Michigan leaders in calling for strong investment in clean drinking water in the state.

Rep. Glanville joins other Michigan leaders who support the Building Michigan Together Plan. Put forth by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the Plan outlines an investment of about 2 billion dollars to address “critical water infrastructure needs.”

It’s crucial to “upgrade our water infrastructure systems to alleviate flooding and PFAS contamination,” which will also “create well-paid, local jobs around sustainable infrastructure initiatives,” said Conlin.

The Building Michigan Together Plan takes on improvements of existing systems, including the replacements of lead service leans and failing septic systems, as well as aid for small communities. It also lays out plans for addressing future concerns through $20 million allocated for public health risk reduction and $8 million to address emerging contaminants.

Conlin, who is running for the Michigan State House, was born and raised in Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan and Northwestern.
