FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says he's still focused on resolving Flint's crisis with lead-tainted drinking water, despite hecklers and other vocal critics.

Snyder told radio station WWJ-AM that he was heckled Thursday night while dining at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor.

He says "other things like that have been going on for some time now" and that the criticism makes him "feel terrible," but that he remains focused on resolving the city's problems.

Ann Arbor resident Laura Tanner told The Ann Arbor News that she and a friend gave Snyder an earful at the Old Town Tavern. She says she yelled "How was your water? Was it clean?" at the Republican governor

Protesters have been rallying outside Snyder's residence, saying he didn't act swiftly enough to help Flint residents.
