Wyoming City Councilman John Fitzgerald is voicing his support for investments in clean drinking water for Michigan, following the passage of the Building Michigan Together Plan.

The plan, which Governor Whitmer signed into law earlier this year, provides almost $2 billion in funding for critical clean water investments, including $712 million for clean water initiatives to address storm and wastewater, $325 million to replace lead service lines, and $55 million to help communities tackle toxic contaminants like PFAS.

Fitzgerald, who is running for the Michigan State House, has served as Wyoming, Michigans’s Council Member-At-Large since 2020. In addition to his work on the council, Fitzgerald serves as the West Michigan Community Board Chair for Ele’s Place, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for grieving children and their families.
