Lead Contamination Flint Is EPA At Fault?

In June of 2015 Flint’s mayor  wrote the EPA’s Region 5 head
Asking information on the amount of lead
Susan Hedman basically told the mayor to go pound sand
Typical of the arrogance of the EPA whose regulatory power thirst is completely out of hand
Lead contamination is no laughing matter
Stifles mental growth and turns human into mad hatters
There may a slender ray of hope in that Ms. Hedman has resigned
As opposed to the bureaucratic response to an inept administrator being reassigned.
Meanwhile the state and the city are playing the finger pointing blame game
Increasing cries from the citizens that it’s a matter of race which racial tensions will inflame
