“The crisis in Flint demands that we work together on medium- and long-term solutions to the city’s water problems. The priority for all of us, as elected officials, should be the health and well-being of Flint residents. It is troubling the Snyder administration has decided to hire an outside political public relations firm — with ties to his administration —  that will be focused on spin instead of solutions and funded by some unknown dark money source. It’s another example of the lack of transparency and accountability that this administration has shown over the past several years. I call on the governor to restore people’s faith in government by being transparent and by stopping his spin machine and kicking his solution machine into high gear.”
