DETROIT (AP) — The needs of Flint, Michigan, "far exceed the state's capability," Gov. Rick Snyder said in a request for a federal disaster declaration and millions of dollars that could pay for clean water, filters and cartridges for residents whose water system has been contaminated by lead.
Snyder's letter to President Barack Obama paints a bleak picture of the troubled city, describing Flint as an "impoverished area" that has been overwhelmed by the release of lead from old pipes — the result of using the Flint River as the city's drinking water for 18 months. Nearly 60 percent of residents get food stamps, and median household income is 50 percent less than the statewide figure, according to Snyder's letter.
"Mistrust in government is at a heightened level," Snyder, a Republican, said in a request dated Thursday and released to The Associated Press.
yes, please give us money to fix the massive problem that could easily have been prevented by competent leadership. an emergency which the state emergency management people who have been running flint for 4 years cannot address. and what a shock that mistrust in government is at a heightened level, considering that YOUR GOVERNMENT just knowingly allowed people to drink poisoned water for months. what a joke.
