Tom "Smitty" Smith: Obama should appoint another EPA administrator with the courage of Lisa Jackson


By: Public Citizen

Dec. 27, 2012 – Statement by Tom "Smitty" Smith, director, Public Citizen Texas

Lisa Jackson has been a good EPA administrator and will be missed. Her courage has been evident in many different arenas, from climate policy, tougher particle standards, automobile fuel efficiency standards and power plant pollution limits.

She has often been frustrated by the Obama administration's cowardice on critical policies, such as long overdue ozone standards.

Public Citizen hopes that the Obama administration will appoint someone with as much courage as Lisa Jackson to lead the EPA.

The next EPA administrator must deal with climate change and the White House must have the administrator's back.

Public Citizen is a national, nonprofit consumer advocacy organization that has worked to protect health, safety and democracy since 1971.
