Mike Prusi, 3-term 109th District Representative, 2-term Senator for the 38th District
"I’ve known Janet Metsa for nearly twenty years. The first, and in my view, the most important thing you learn about Janet is that when she takes on a task she makes sure that it’s done and done right. Whether it’s running her business, serving her community in an appointed role or volunteering in her church or political party, her organizational skills and willingness to work hard are valued by the people around her. They recognize that Janet sincerely cares about them and about the issues they are resolving. Caring and sisu are what she was taught by her Finnish forebearers when they immigrated to the Copper Country. We share that Finnish heritage and that sisu. I am proud to call Janet my friend and to offer her my endorsement as she seeks the nomination to be the Democratic candidate in the 110th State House District."

"Janet Metsa has a long history working on behalf of our environment. She knows that protecting our land, water, and air is not just the right thing to do ecologically but is also essential to the economy of the U.P. Home to some of the highest energy prices in the nation, Janet has the background and leadership experience needed to deliver practical, affordable, and sustainable energy solutions to the residents of the 110th district."
Scott Dianda, 3-term 110th District Representative
"Janet has the life experience and good sense to represent the Western UP like it deserves!"
Phil Musser, former Executive Director of the Keweenaw Economic Development Alliance and Smartzone Chairperson
"As a business entrepreneur and former KEDA Board member, Janet has been an important force in building the Western UP economy. Janet not only started her own business but was also a key person on the KEDA board in designing and carrying out an aggressive economic development strategy for the Western UP at a time when businesses had closed and jobs had been lost. This is again a critical time when the Western UP needs to continue to reinvent its economy to create family sustaining jobs as it emerges from the pandemic. The Western UP region needs economic savvy leaders like Janet."
“Janet’s upbringing on her family farm instilled in her the values of hard work, protecting the environment, and the importance of sustainability. While working at the EPA, Janet protected water and air quality across the country. She will fight to ensure Michiganders are kept safe from harmful pollutants, and serve as a dedicated representative for the people of House District 110. EMILY’s List is excited to support her campaign for the Michigan state House,” said Sarah Curmi, interim vice president of state and local campaigns at EMILY’s List.
