June 26, 2003
Dear Mr. President:
I hereby tender my resignation as Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, effective July 11, 2003.
It has been a rare privilege to serve as a member of your Administration and under the leadership of Governor Whitman. I am proud of the work this Agency has done to preserve and protect our precious natural environment and the health of the American people, whom we all have the honor to serve.
I am also proud that, as Deputy Administrator, I have had the opportunity to contribute to the long record of environmental protection achieved by this Agency under seven presidents over more than three decades. The work of this Agency, and its many talented and dedicated employees, has made a real difference for our country and its people.
I will always be grateful for the opportunity to serve your Administration at the EPA. While much work remains to be done, I look forward, at this time in my life, to spending more time with my two young children.
I wish you continued success in all your undertakings in the days ahead.
Linda J. Fisher
