U.S. EPA head breaks promise to visit Clyde

Tom Jackson • Feb 2, 2013 at 3:10 PM

In addition, EPA officials have asked the families to quit sending questions to the EPA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., and send them instead to a regional office in Chicago.

Jackson wrote a letter in October 2011 to Warren and Wendy Brown — parents of Alexa Brown, 11, who died of cancer — saying she would visit Clyde to meet with the cancer cluster families after the EPA concluded its investigation in the matter.

In an October 2011 press release, Jackson said she would come to Clyde “next year.”

As 2012 came and went, Jackson never showed up.

She announced recently she’s stepping down as the EPA’s administrator early this year. A replacement hasn’t been named.
