In his State of the State address this week, Governor Rick Snyder apologized to people in Flint for the water crisis.
“I’m sorry most of all that I let you down,” he said. “You deserve better. You deserve accountability. You deserve to know that the buck stops here with me. Most of all, you deserve to know the truth, and I have a responsibility to tell the truth.”
The governor said he would release his emails related to Flint. Those emails came out late yesterday afternoon.
In general, the emails didn’t divulge anything big. They pretty much underscored what’s already been revealed. That the state didn't recognize the severity of the problem, and downplayed or dismissed the warning signs.
