Dear Mr. Krupp:

As someone who has been involved with chemical right to know issues since the late 1970's, I was extremely disappointed to learn of Environmental Defense's endorsement of New Jersey Governor Whitman to be EPA Administrator.

Governor Whitman has:


-slashed funding, staffing, and enforcement at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP);
-cut 2,000 chemicals from the list of hazardous substances that had to be reported by employers to the state under the right to know program and refused to publicize, despite promises otherwise, her minimal right to know enforcement actions;
-been directly involved in the siting of potentially hazardous facilities in heavily polluted, minority communities, without evaluating such decisions in light of New Jersey's theoretical "environmental equity" policy;
-refused to meet with victims of the Napp Technologies chemical explosion (despite their request for a meeting) and, in fact, blamed workers for a major tragedy that killed five employees, when other factors were the cause;
-let DEP proceed with its "Silver Track" cooperative compliance program that includes provisions for "community outreach" that are much weaker then even those in the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care Program and shift resources from real DEP pollution prevention efforts.

I was appointed by Governor Whitman to serve on a task force to evaluate industry chemical reporting requirements under the Worker and Community Right to Know law. It quickly became clear that the only point of this task force was to appear to address a controversy in the period before her second election. After the election, the issue was dropped.

And it was only because our organization, with others, threatened to sue her Administration that the state funded its Hazardous Substance Fact Sheet program, as required by our state right to know law.

Environmental Defense's is an extremely valuable resource that we frequently use. It is most disheartening that while you are helping to uncover industry's release of toxics that you are simultaneously covering up the real record of Governor Whitman, a servant of corporate polluters.


I would welcome a response.
