faucet-glass_456pxDemocrat attempts to spin Newark’s lead crisis into another Detroit-like cudgel to attack Republicans just hit a major snag, Save Jerseyans.

“Newark officials rejected the federal government’s help to combat lead contamination in school water supplies more than a decade ago, WNYC has learned. But some school workers said the safety protocols that Newark implemented were not followed consistently in the school system’s aging buildings,” explained a brand new WNYC report out today.

Senate Republican Christopher “Kip” Bateman is taking the lead to address the crisis by pushing a $20 million lead abatement appropriation for the Newark water supply  and anywhere else the DEP deems necessary.
