Nominee Christopher Abruzzo will lead a critical agency

Harrisburg – John Hanger said today that he wishes the new nominee to head the Department of Environmental Protection well in his confirmation process and as the leader of a critical state government agency.

“The Department of Environmental Protection is critical to the health and safety of Pennsylvania residents and to the health of our environment,” said Hanger. “I wish him well as he takes on this important responsibility.”

“I am glad to see the agency now has a permanent leader,” said Hanger. “This is not a time for politics. It’s time for DEP to move ahead under new leadership.”

Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."
