State Epidemiologist Resigns, Says McCrory's Admin 'Deliberately Misleads the Public'

6 Comment(s) | Posted | , ,

Last night in a stunning turn of events the State Epidemiologist, Dr. Megan Davies, submitted her resignation in a scathing letter that accuses Governor McCrory's administration of deliberately misleading the public over water safety and public heath. In her letter, she also cited the smear campaign directed toward Dr. Ken Rudo, the State Toxicologist, who also accused the Governor's water regulators of ignoring public safety. 

This is the most disturbing and obvious sign yet that Governor McCrory's administration is willfully ignorant of public health and is determined to protect Duke Energy at all costs.

    Please ask Roy Cooper to get involved earlier than later with the water issues facing North Carolina. Ash and Fracking have already done damage that this Governor is spending our money covering up instead of stepping up and repairing/fix the issues and regulations. He is busy giving the culprits a cheap/free ride instead of demanding they take responsibility. Yes, that would be Duke Power and NC Legislators. Counties have to start protecting the water supply now because of current and future drinking needs of North Carolina residents.

    Certainly want McCrory out and agree that his administration is downplaying water quality issues stemming from Duke's ash ponds. I would not lump fracking in with that. Check the statistics. Fracking can be safe if well-regulated.
