Editor in Chief & Publisher Jeff Brown.
Former Michigan governor Rick Snyder will be questioned today about what he knew regarding the Flint water crisis that has gripped my hometown since 2014. In today's deposition, Snyder will be asked about questions relating to what he knew about the horrific contamination of the drinking water in the city of Flint. He is going to be asked the specifics regarding the mass lead contamination of an entire city's drinking water.
The deposition relates to civil lawsuits filed on behalf of over a dozen Children in Flint. Former Governor Snyder has not answered any questions about the the Flint Water Crisis in over four years.
The water crisis began in 2014 when the City of Flint decided to change the source of the city's drinking water in order to save money. The Flint River became the new source of water, however, the water was not correctly treated. The corrosive water began to strip the lead from the city's lead water pipes and soon the poisonous lead riddled water made it's way into Flint homes, contaminating the tap and bath water. The water for 100,000 Flint residents became contaminated at severely hazardous levels.
The deposition began at 9 a.m Thursday morning.
