The Michigan League of Conservation Voters is proud to announce our endorsement of Christine Green in her bid to become the next State Representative for Michigan’s 52nd State House seat. Her consistent advocacy to establish new, green jobs in Washtenaw County – while also improving the quality of life for constituents living in both the rural areas and cities in the district – is the kind of fresh leadership the region needs.

“Washtenaw County has the potential to be a national center of clean energy production and jobs, and Christine Green has the vision and intelligence to unlock that potential,” said Lisa Wozniak, Executive Director for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. “Lansing is suffering from severely rusted ideas right now and Christine will work hard to shake that corrosion loose to create sustainable jobs for Michigan taxpayers.”

Christine Green added, “Right now, we are neglecting the enormous economic benefits of improving energy efficiency, making Washtenaw County a major beneficiary of the Pure Michigan ad campaign, creating mass transit, and furthering the development of alternative energy research in the region. All these issues lead to more jobs and a better quality of life. My plan for Michigan’s future rests on the firm belief that we have the finest workforce in the world right here in our state. If we create the atmosphere for strong green job creation, the talent of these men and women will do the rest to attract new businesses.”

Christine Green has a long history in promoting conservation values. Her work on the Scio Township Board of Trustees, and her tenure as a Trustee on the Board of the Michigan Environmental Council, demonstrate both her commitment to, and understanding of, important environmental issues.

Michigan LCV is a non-partisan, non-profit organization which seeks to turn environmental goals into legislative and community priorities by electing, educating, and holding officials accountable for their votes and actions.
