EPA Names Regional Administrator for the Southeast


The Environmental Protection Agency names an Alabama lobbyist and ex-regulator as the regional administrator for the office that oversees the Southeast. Former Alabama Department of Environmental Management director Trey Glenn will oversee the EPA’s work in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Glenn worked for nearly five years as director of Alabama’s environmental department. He resigned in 2009 after an ethics investigation into a personal trip paid for by a public relations firm and other allegations. The investigation found no criminal wrongdoing. State records show that Glenn is a registered lobbyist for the Business Council of Alabama, which promotes business interests in the state.
