Flint’s lead tainted drinking water has been a crisis for more than a year.
Now it’s also national political issue.
Flint Mayor Karen Weaver strode to the podium at the Democratic National Convention last night after delegates watched video tracing the history of the crisis dating back to April of 20-14.
Once at the podium, Weaver stated the situation bleakly.
“The problems in Flint are not over,” Weaver told the packed sports arena. “The water is still not safe to drink or cook with from the tap. Our infrastructure is broken, leaking, and rusting away.”
