Letters from the Legislature

Title_Flint.png

 

In February 2017, I hand delivered the 4 key documents and annotated timeline to the entire Michigan legislature.  In June, I again went back and delivered the preliminary costs associated with making Flint whole and volunteered to write legislation with them.

I asked these 4 questions:

1 - Are you willing to work with myself and/or other of your fellow legislators to draft legislation that makes Flint whole?

2 - Are you willing to sponsor or co-sponsor drafted legislation that makes Flint whole?

3 - Are you willing to vote yes on drafted legislation that makes Flint whole?

4 - What is your stance on re-opening the Join Senate and House Committee on the Flint Water Crisis based on your office's review of the information provided in February?

The following is what I received back.

Out of the 11 responses I received back, 4 State Senators agreed in their letters to write legislation to make Flint whole.  I followed up with each one, physically going to their Lansing offices and asking to schedule a meeting and following up in each instance with staffers and was ignored for a request for a meeting except in the case of Ian Conyers.  His office scheduled a meeting with me, which was subsequently cancelled the day prior to the meeting.  There still has been no legislation introduced in the Michigan legislature to make Flint whole.  

Are you as angry and unhappy about this lack of response and lack of responsibility for our state legislature to fix Michigan's worst crisis in our state's history?

Help me hold them accountable.  Contact your elected officials and tell them you expect better, and in November 2018 vote them all out of office for their inability to do their job and their lack of humanity.

 

Below are the 11 responses I did receive.
