Snyder makes surprise visit in Flint

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Karen Weaver said she was as shock as anyone to see Gov. Rick Snyder in Flint on Friday.

“It was actually a surprise visit we did not know he would be coming today to the meeting,” Weaver said.

This comes on the heels of Snyder’s request for a federal declaration of an emergency and an expedited major disaster for Genesee County.

“I think everything that's happened has convinced him," Weaver said. "It was people talking, the pastors talking, it's the scientific community and the talks we've had, that's what we have been working on. Flint deserves more than what we've gotten.”
