Secretary Tennant Urges West Virginians To Sign Online Petition Demanding Water Testing Results From CDC
Saturday, February 1, 2014 - 19:14 From Press Release
Secretary Tennant wrote a letter to CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, asking the agency to make the testing results easily accessible and understandable for the 300,000 people who had their water contaminated by a chemical leak on January 9.
“West Virginians deserve these answers, and we are not going to stop until we get them,” Secretary Tennant said. “By signing this online petition, we are all sending a very clear message that we aren’t going to just sit idly by while these very serious questions remain unanswered. We want to know if our water is safe and how that determination was reached. West Virginians deserve to know if what is coming out of their faucet is going to make their family sick.”
Read the letter to Dr. Frieden here.
“As a mother of a young daughter living in Kanawha County, I share your concerns. As your Secretary of State, I’m demanding answers – and I ask you to join me, by signing the petition on the Secretary of State’s website.”
The online petition is available by clicking this link.
