May 14, 2002

The Environmental and Regulatory Practice Group of the law firm of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C., along with the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, the Herman Miller Corporation, and the Detroit Free Press, announces that the candidates for governor from the Republican and Democratic parties, will join together in a public forum to discuss environmental issues facing the state. The forum will be held from 7:30-9:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center of Brighton High School and is open to the public.

Republican candidates Lt. Governor Richard Posthumus and State Senator Joseph Schwarz; and Democratic candidates former Governor James Blanchard, U.S. Congressman David Bonior, and Attorney General Jennifer Granholm will participate in the forum, which will be taped for broadcast on Michigan Radio and Television at a later date.

It is expected to be the only group appearance of the candidates before the Michigan Primary on August 6, 2002.

Environmental issues and policy involving water, air and wildlife are important to all of us. The forum will allow all the gubernatorial candidates an opportunity to express their views and provide the public an opportunity to consider those views in a single setting.

Brighton High School is just west of downtown Brighton, at 7878 Brighton Road. Call 810/229-1419 for venue information.
