Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on Governor Snyder’s State of the State Address

January 17, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement after Michigan Governor Rick Snyder barely mentioned the ongoing Flint water crisis in his annual State of the State address:

“Governor Snyder has failed Flint families. It is disgraceful that a city of 100,000 people still doesn’t have clean drinking water and the Governor could barely devote two minutes of his State of the State to Flint. Just two minutes dedicated to Flint? Really? This is an ongoing emergency– people in my hometown are still drinking bottled water and using filters. The Governor is either completely aloof or simply doesn’t care about Flint.

“Shame on the Governor for not using tonight to outline additional steps that he is going to take to ensure clean drinking water in Flint. I will not rest until the Governor and the state step up to do more to help the city recover from this man-made crisis.”
