U.S. Rep. Gary Peters: ‘Continued federal support for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is so critical’
U.S. Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) penned an op-ed in the Oakland Press this week.
Here’s a sampling:
“Simply put, the Great Lakes give our region a competitive edge and, to secure a vibrant economy for future generations, we must invest in keeping them clean and healthy.”
“In a time of high unemployment, restoration projects like these create well paying jobs ranging from engineers and biologists to carpenters, electricians, and truck drivers.”
It’s great to see a member of the Great Lakes congressional delegation to voice support for results-oriented restoration programs. I’d like to see more do the same.
