A Choice for Governor, A Choice for Conservation
By Dave Dempsey Posted 08/01/2002
LANSING -- Guest columnist Dave Dempsey, Policy Advisor for the Michigan Environmental Council,
says Jennifer Granholm, more than any of the other gubernatorial candidates,
offers to involve Michiganians in the natural resources decision-making process.
Dempsey notes that for Keweenaw residents this means "decisions would be hammered out on the anvil of a conservation ethic, which keeps in mind
the needs of future generations and the value of the Keweenaw's majestic beauty,
not just monetary values."
