X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 23, 2018 BY ZACK POHL Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha Endorses Gretchen Whitmer for Governor FLINT — Today Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the physician, scientist, and activist whose research exposed the Flint water crisis, announced her support for Gretchen Whitmer for governor. “I endorse Gretchen Whitmer, unequivocally and enthusiastically, as the best choice for kids come November,” said Dr. Mona. “She has the potential to be an effective leader on the issues Michiganders care about. She has spoken eloquently about the environmental injustice at the heart of the Flint water crisis. She is committed to replacing our lead service lines in Flint and across the state. She understands that PFAS is an imminent threat to our water supply. She has a plan to fight endemic poverty in our cities, especially the scourge of poverty devastating Michigan’s children.” Dr. Mona is the founder and director of the Pediatric Public Health Initiative, a model program to mitigate the impact of the Flint water crisis and ensure kids in Flint grow up healthy. Her work exposing the Flint water crisis awarded her the Freedom of Expression Courage Award by PEN America. In 2016, Dr. Mona was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. “I’m so proud to have Dr. Mona’s support because she’s dedicated her life to serving the people of Flint,” said Whitmer. “We’ve got to make sure kids in Flint and across the state have the support they need to live a healthy life so they can get ahead. That means ensuring they have nutrition, dental and medical services in school and access to quality, affordable health care. It means speeding up the replacement of lead pipes and restoring bottled water services to Flint residents. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves on day one and get to work making sure every community has clean, safe drinking water and every Michigander has a path to a high wage skill.” Whitmer has released a plan to clean up our drinking water by creating the Department of Great Lakes and Freshwater. Whitmer’s plan calls for expediting the replacement of lead pipes and cleaning up PFAS contamination sites across the state so every community has clean, safe drinking water. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post MI Nurses Association VP: “Bill Schuette is getting desperate” Next Post   Deputy Sheriffs Association of Michigan Endorses Whitmer for Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
