Hip Hop Caucus Statement on Scott Pruitt resignation as EPA Administrator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 5, 2018

Contact: Mark Antoniewicz, 202.293.5902, mark@hiphopcaucus.org

Washington, D.C. – In response to Scott Pruitt resigning as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali, Senior Vice President for Climate, Environmental Justice, & Community Revitalization at Hip Hop Caucus, and former EPA Senior Associate Administrator, released the following statement: 

“Scott Pruitt should have never been let in the doors at the EPA. He worked for polluters instead of the American people and blatantly used his position of power for personal gain. At the same time he was wasting hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to live lavishly, he was also taking dramatic steps from the inside to rip apart an agency that protects public health. In addition to ignoring science and real time realities by failing to act on climate change, he did everything he could to take away basic clean water and air protections for our communities. Today is a day to applaud all who kept up the pressure for him to resign, especially the “Boot Pruitt” campaign that gave people a voice in the fight. President Trump should take notice that we will continue to push back on anyone as EPA Administrator that represents polluters over people. We the people deserve transparency, accountability, and an EPA Administrator that works for us. ”
