Progress Michigan Statement on Snyder Calling National Guard to Flint

MICHIGAN — Watchdog group Progress Michigan put out the following statement from its executive director, Lonnie Scott, in response to the news that Gov. Rick Snyder has called in the National Guard to assist in the Flint Water Crisis.

“In the typical dead-of-night fashion that Michigan Republicans have become so dependent on, Governor Snyder chose President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union to announce that he is activating the National Guard to help with the Flint water crisis. While we welcome any and all assistance for families affected by Michigan Republican’s man-made disaster, we still don’t know what Snyder knew and when he knew it and these types of non-transparent actions do nothing to build the trust he spoke about at his press conference yesterday.”
