Tuesday is Election Day. I encourage each of you to exercise your most important right as an American citizen: the right to vote.
It doesn’t matter whether you live in a blue state or a red state, or whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Green or Independent. We all need clean water to drink. And we all want healthy rivers where we can swim, fish and paddle with our friends and family.
Water crises like Flint, Michigan, show that we need to make sure our elected officials don’t take our water for granted. No one should have to worry about whether the water that comes out of their tap is safe for their children to drink.
This election, take time to better understand where your local, state and federal candidates stand on protecting rivers and clean water. And then get out there and vote!
