LANSING — A former spokesman for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality who resigned over the Flint drinking water crisis has joined the Lansing lobbying corps.
Brad Wurfel, who said last summer that Flint residents worried about lead contamination of their water should "relax," registered as a lobbyist in July and is working for the Lansing firm of Kandler Reed Khoury & Muchmore, records show.
"I work with a wide range of clients to help them address challenges and find more effective ways to communicate," Wurfel said about his new job, in an updated posting on his LinkedIn page.
Wurfel did not return a phone message from the Free Press.
