Bloomfield Township Trustee Stephanie Fakih says she strongly supports investments in clean drinking water for Michigan families.

Fakih came together with leaders from both parties to call for the passage of the Building Michigan Together Plan, which provides $2 billion for infrastructure improvements aimed at ensuring that Michiganders have clean drinking water. The bipartisan legislation, which Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed into law earlier this year, includes $325 million to replace lead service lines, $55 million to help communities remove toxic contaminants such as PFAS, and $712 million for initiatives to address storm and wastewater issues.

Fakih, who is running for the Michigan State House, is a criminal defense attorney who received her BA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and her JD from Fordham University School of Law in New York City. She says she uses her professional experience to help educate young people by serving as a mentor to Michigan students interested in legal and government careers and by volunteering as a judge in high school and law school mock trial competitions.
