krsval Skipped over my initial thought--sorry--that Ed Kurtz is one of the most altruistic men you will ever find, and has dedicated most of his life to making Flint a better place.I don't think he was even paid for being emergency manager...
krsval I consider water lines and pipes infrastructure, which is why i say gov't should foot bill. 2Nd emergency manager came from Saginaw School system...got ok reviews but was looking for a more high profile job..I guess my son won't be going to U of M Flint now (we visited)..feel bad for the real estate and negative business repercussions this will cause.
rocksavedmysoul I would like to see who said to switch to Flint, AND what studies and documents they first looked at to base their decision. Were they misled, incompetent? I do know Todd Flood (former Allen Parker who grew up with my husband and I knew through my journalist career) who has been assigned to investigate the matter, will get to the bottom of this. I worry about politics getting in the way, but I think Flood has integrity and will let the chips fall where they may. I certainly hope so.
rocksavedmysoul So sorry MsB. I know there are no words to ease your pain but know we all care here.
molly36 I`m very sorry for you and your family. All the best for you.
krsval Donna, I am so sorry...it hurts to Ilose loved ones. Please know I believe they are in a better place. I lost my cousin this week to cancer..she was same.age as me with a son my daughter's age..my cousin Earl turned to me and said, " you never know what is going to come up and bite you"....we have to live our lives to the fullest. Every day.
