“When it comes to the water itself, we are supporting a program that Mayor Weaver announced through Flint WaterWorks to pay people in Flint-not outsiders, but people here-to deliver the water while we are fixing the pipes”, Clinton said early on. “You don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you walk down the street or get dragged out of a vehicle”.
