Since his departure from Metro Times, Curt Guyette has been on a roll at the ACLU of Michigan: uncovering what's happening in Michigan thanks to the state's emergency manager law. He has alerted us to how the Education Achievement Authority became a testing ground for software companies, how emergency managers have driven DPS ever deeper into debt, and more. But his work over the last year exposing why Flint switched to the Flint River as its water source, and what happened afterward, have catapulted him into the national spotlight and convinced the Michigan Press Association to name him Journalist of the Year. We couldn't agree more.
