Dingell Joins President to Meet with Flint Families Affected by Water Crisis


FLINT, MI – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) today accompanied the President on his visit to Flint, where he heard firsthand from residents about the public health crisis, received a briefing on the federal efforts in place to help respond to the needs of the people of Flint, and delivered remarks to the community.

“We thank the President for coming to Flint today to shine a light on this ongoing public health crisis and the families who are still in desperate need of relief,” said Dingell. “Government at all levels failed the people of Flint, and now government at all levels must come together to provide real help to the 9,000 children who were impacted by this crisis and the thousands of people still living this nightmare every day. It is my hope that the President’s visit reminds all of us what this is really about – getting solutions for Flint children and families – and that it serves as a catalyst for action at the state and federal level that will fix fundamental issues and help the city and its residents recover. This country has always stepped up to help one another in times of great need, and it is now time to do the same for Flint.”
