Dear Editor,

I am in my fifth year advocating for accountability, public awareness and regulation of dangerous PFAS “forever chemicals.” Two candidates for public office in Marinette County would join me in that effort if elected: Ben Murray in the 36th Assembly District, and Jane Benson in the 89th Assembly District. Each has made clean water one of their top issues. They pledge to protect our groundwater, rivers and lakes from these toxic chemicals that have been recklessly discarded into our environment. Murray and Benson support regulation of PFAS in Wisconsin whereas their opponents do not.
