Good Riddance, Scott Pruitt

WASHINGTON - Statement from Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch:

“In an administration that is notorious for its corrupt approach to governing, Scott Pruitt’s shamelessly self-enriching antics actually stood out. Pruitt’s systematic attack on the EPA itself, his devotion to polluting industries, and his disdain for American public health and environmental protections made him an unfit leader of the agency. His scandals were just icing on the cake.

 

“We say to Scott Pruitt: Good riddance.

 

 

“We say to Donald Trump: We will continue to oppose your cabinet’s agenda to serve billionaires and corporate interests, and we will continue to fight your administration’s attack on our environmental protections, whoever the next EPA administrator may be.”

 

 

Food & Water Watch champions healthy food and clean water for all. We stand up to corporations that put profits before people, and advocate for a democracy that improves people’s lives and protects our environment.
