From Greensboro to Wrightsburg Beach, cancer-causing chemicals have been detected in water supplies in North Carolina, putting our families at risk. Instead of pledging to clean up this mess and protect our health, Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler doesn’t seem to care. We can’t count on him to keep our drinking water clean and protect North Carolina kids’ right to a healthy future. This is unacceptable. It’s Senator Tillis’ job to keep us safe – but he just voted to confirm Wheeler to permanently lead the EPA.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler is an ex-coal lobbyist. If his confirmation proceedings taught us anything, it’s that there’s no length he wouldn’t go to give his polluter cronies a leg up – at the expense of our health and safety. As acting administrator, he moved to roll back critical mercury pollution and clean vehicle standards and stopped at nothing to smother facts and silence his own scientists.
Bottom line: Andrew Wheeler will put us in danger. He is unfit to lead the EPA, and Sen. Tillis’ vote to confirm him was a vote against our health and safety.
Call Senator Tillis and let him know that a vote for Wheeler was a vote against North Carolina families. Type your phone number into the box and you’ll receive a call from us. We’ll make sure you know what to say and then we’ll connect you to your senator – make sure to tell him that Andrew Wheeler is the wrong person to lead the EPA.
