Lisa Jackson was one of a kind. Not only was she the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, she is also a black woman. Jackson stepped down recently after a four year period of leading the nation’s top environmental regulatory agency. Jackson’s tenure was a consistent battle with Republicans to try to make changes to environmental regulations.
The 50-year old Jackson told the president that she wanted to leave next year, informing him of the move right after the election. She issued a short statement on the matter this morning and is mum about what she wants to do after she leaves office.
