A press conference was held last summer and another one two weeks ago by community leaders who complained that a proposed settlement by the State of Michigan isn't big enough in the Flint water crisis lawsuits. Pastors, politicians and community activists joined together to urge residents to demand more money for their city being poisoned. The Flint City Council also met more than 10 hours in two marathon meetings to determine if they want to approve the city's $20 million share of a $641 million settlement. Many expressed frustration about the state submitting them only a summary of the deal. "We are being asked to okay something we can't even see," said 1st Ward City Councilman Eric Mays. The Daily Gazette has obtained a copy of documents now available online via the U.S. District Court. Links are below:
