“Flint Water Crisis to Remain an Issue Through the 2018 Governor's Election,” Detroit Free Press
August 10, 2017
LANSING — The poisoning of Flint's drinking water will leave a stain on the legacy of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder.
And whoever replaces Snyder will have to confront the aftermath of the public health disaster — and how he or she proposes to deal with it — during the 2018 campaign, where most candidates from both major parties say they expect it will be a significant issue.
On Saturday, Democratic candidates for governor will participate in a forum in Flint on the water crisis sponsored by the Michigan People's Campaign and other Democratic organizations.
