GOVERNOR SNYDER RELYS ON CHARITY THAT IS NOT ENOUGH


THE SNYDER STRATEGY RELIED ON CHARITIES AND VOLUNTEERS, "ORDINARY CITIZENS"
 
FLINT, MI - MICHIGAN GOVERNOR SNYDER FIRST DENIED, THEN DELAYED IN DECLARING FLINT A STATE EMERGENCY.
 GOVERNOR SNYDER ONLY RELENTED UPON REALIZING THAT THE CRISIS IS BEYOND THE STATE OF MICHIGAN’S ABILITY TO CONTROL AND RESOLVE.

SNYDER CLUNG TO HIS INITIAL EXPLANATION IN DENIAL OF  ANY CULPABILITY OR KNOWLEDGE BEFORE OCTOBER 2015. HE BLAMED CONFUSION WITHIN THE DEQ.

 

"WHO, ME?

 
SINCE THE GOVERNOR’S DECLARATION HIS STRATEGY BECAME LUDICROUS IN THE FACE OF TEN DEATHS AND UNTOLD NUMBER OF CHILDREN NOW INFECTED.

 

PART OF THE PLAN: LEAVE VULNERABLE ADULTS FEND FOR THEMSELVES

 
ON MONDAY, JANUARY 11, GOVERNOR SNYDER AND HIS TEAM MET WITH LOCAL OFFICIALS TO RECONCILE DIFFERENCES AND UNITE TO TAKE STEPS. HE AND HIS DHHS OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED THEIR INITIAL PLAN.




 
 
 
FLINT RESIDENTS LINE UP FOR DONATED WATER

THIS IS WHAT RESIDENTS FACE DAILY



·        GOVERNOR SNYDER CAME TO RELY ON VOLUNTEER GROUPS COMING FORWARD TO HELP REDUCE LONG LINES FOR WATER.
·         GOVERNOR SNYDER FAILED TO RALLY HIS OWN STAFF, THE LEGISLATURE, REPUBLICAN PARTY OR LANSING EMPLOYEES FOR CONTRIBUTIONS, TRANSPORT
·         STUCK TO RECOMMENDATIONS OF STATE’S TOP MEDICAL OFFICER FOR FLINT RESIDENTS TO STOP DRINKING TOXIC WATER, USE FILTERS AND LIMIT BATHING
·         CALLED IN NATIONAL GUARD TO ASSIST IN DISTRIBUTION OF DONATED WATER ON WEDNESDAY. SEVEN GUARDSMAN ARRIVED. YES ONLY SEVEN WITH AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO HAVE MORE ON FRIDAY.
·         SUPPLY WATER TAP FILTERS BUT NOT NEAR THE DEMAND. MICHIGAN’S NO. 1 NERD  FAILED TO DETERMINE THE REAL NUMBER REQUIRED FOR A POPULATION OF 900,000
 
 
ONLY WHEN THE MAGNITUDE BLUNDER UPON BLUNDER, GOV. SNYDER REQUESTED PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLARE FLINT A NATIONAL DISASTER TO GAIN FEDERAL AID. ON SATURDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLARED FLINT AN EMERGENCY SO TRAGIC THAT FEMA AND FEDERAL $50 MILLION IS ON THE WAY. LET US HOPE IT IS ONLY THE FIRST OF MUCH MORE TO COME.

 
 
THE FLINT WATER CRISIS GOES FAR BEYOND A SINGLE ENVIRONMENTAL INCIDENT. IT IS ABOUT WATER AS A HUMAN RIGHT, NOT WATER FOR PROFIT – CORPORATE & POLITICAL GREED.
