UPDATE: Gov. Snyder on Flint water crisis: “It’s a matter of trust”

FLINT, Mich (WLNS) – Gov. Rick Snyder agreed that it is “a matter of trust” as efforts are made to fix the Flint water crisis.

Snyder was at the Flint City Hall remarking on developments concerning crisis.

He was joined by Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, Michigan State Police Capt. Chris Kelenske, Department of Environmental Quality Interim Director Keith Creagh and Department of Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon.

The governor insisted “it wasn’t about spinning anything. It’s about getting the facts to people” to explain why public relations firms are involved in the communications process.

He also said that the Flint problem points out a problem that many cities face: find lead pipes that have been in use for decades.
