1250 Line APS Water

June 14, 2019 – Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists debate the Albuquerque Public Schools response to elevated lead levels found in many elementary schools’ sinks and faucets. The district volunteered almost 70 schools for testing, but did not immediately disclose the results. Now, parents and teachers are concerned about exposure of children to the tainted water, and concerned for themselves.

Line Panelists:
Martha Burk, political psychologist and women’s issues expert
Tom Garrity, The Garrity Group PR
Andy Lyman, reporter, New Mexico Political Report
