SEJ members have complained a lot over many years about difficulties getting information and interviews from US EPA. SEJ officers and FOI watchdogs have talked to EPA about the problems for a long time, too. Here's a new suggestion for cutting through the fog: call the public affairs director.
Each EPA regional office has its own public affairs director, and they can be contacted via the numbers and emails in the list below. If a regular call to a line press officer brings poor results, try explaining your problem to the boss:
|Region 1:||Nancy Grantham (PAD)||(617) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Region 2:||Bonnie Bellow (PAD)||(212) email@example.com|
|Region 3:||Terri White (Acting PAD)||(215) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Region 4:||Larry Lincoln (PAD)||(404) email@example.com|
|Region 5:||Elissa Speizman (PAD)||(312) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Region 6:||David Gray (PAD)||(214) email@example.com|
|Region 7:||Rich Hood (PAD)||(913) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Region 8:||Paula Smith (PAD)||(303) email@example.com|
|Region 9:||Kelly Zito (PAD)||(415) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Region 10:||Marianne Holsman (PAD)||(206) email@example.com|
