Jim Collins and Brad Wurfel need to be indicted next

This is a very troubling article: ... /83442824/
Henry unsuccessfully tried to get the state to investigate whether Legionnaires’ could be linked to the city’s water system, which was switched in April 2014 from the Detroit system to the Flint River.

Henry’s suspicions were called “beyond irresponsible” by former Michigan Department of Environmental Quality spokesman Brad Wurfel in a March 2015 email to top Snyder aide Henry Hollins.
When Henry couldn’t get the DEQ to investigate the Legionnaires’ outbreak, he called the federal Environmental Protection Agency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — to the annoyance of state officials. Jim Collins, chief of the state health department’s infectious disease division, told Henry to back off in a Dec. 7 email, saying the CDC’s involvement “should be at the request of the state, rather than the local health department.”

Henry’s frustration was palpable in scores of his emails that were among more than tens of thousands of pages of government communications released by the Governor’s Office beginning in February, and another 4,000 handed over by Genesee County in response to a Detroit News Freedom of Information Act request.

In a Dec. 4 memo to Genesee County colleagues, Henry lamented that the CDC had appeared poised to investigate the Legionnaires’ outbreak before Collins declared the outbreak over last May.
