Thank You to all who have now brought the maximum State and Federal , resources and national Media exposure to Flint’s struggle with lead poisoned municipal water.
We now have to manage , coordinate or cooperate with this tusami of services aimed at helping Flint victims with multiple services by multiple sources and authority.
Individually we must participate, document and advocate for a fair transparent process with equal access. It is inevitable the bureaucracy organizing this effort will Leave some rightfully feeling they have a grievance to be redressed.
I suggest this complaint handling system be organized now. It would be a “Good Govenment “ thing to do .
We have in our current Flint City Charter such a mechanism.
City Administrator , Mayor Weaver and the Flint City Council I suggest advocacy for filling the critical and extremely important Flint City Charter Office Of Flint Ombudsman!
