UPDATE: DEP Secretary Nomination

I received a call from "a friend" yesterday regarding a prior post. They asked me why I failed to mention that I went to the same college and took the same courses and graduated with the same EnviSci degree as current DCNR Secretary Ellen Ferretti.
From my perspective, one of us walked away with an education, understanding of and respect for the environment...while the other walked away with a piece of paper.

I'll leave it at that.

BTW, if I was appointed, this would be my first email to everyone employed at the DEP. I would copy Toxic Tommy and select members of the media:
To all:
Over the course of the next few months, I hope to meet all of you.
Until then, please remember this; we work for the Department of Environmental Protection AND the citizens of this great commonwealth. 
As I view it, our jobs are to protect, preserve and - wherever possible - enhance Pennsylvania's environment to ensure future generations will look back at what we did and say "Thank you" instead of asking "Why?"
Let's get to work.
Think I'm not qualified for this position?
Remember the last two guys chosen?

  1. Just remind Toxic Tommy of your mutual love of kayaking, and you'll be in!
