Scott Smith is a great example of what Congressman Elijah Cummings said Sunday: turn your pain into passion and you'll find your purpose. Just like us here in Flint, Scott's life was turned upside down by contaminated water, but he found a way to help others through his own personal tragedy. I'm proud and honored to work with Scott and Mark Ruffalo. They put our needs first and understand what we're suffering through. Thank you guys and Water Defense for helping is find answers through our disaster so we can carry on and help others.
