For Immediate Release Common Cause Responds To Criminal Charges Involving the Flint Water Crisis

Posted on July 29, 2016

Joint Statement of Common Cause and Common Cause Michigan on the Criminal Charges Filed Against State Employees Involved in the Flint Water Crisis

"The charges filed today against six state employees involved in the Flint Water Crisis are a step in the right direction to ensure our government is accountable to its citizens. However, there is still a lack of transparency and accountability surrounding the crisis in Flint. Most of the questions involving the Flint water crisis and Gov. Snyder are still unanswered. The people of Flint, and the entire state of Michigan, deserve to know the full extent of Gov. Snyder’s involvement and knowledge of this crisis."
