WASHINGTON -- Christine Todd Whitman is resigning from her job as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and will return to her home in New Jersey, the agency announced on Wednesday.
"As rewarding as the past two and a half years have been for me professionally, it is time to return to my home and husband in New Jersey," Whitman said in a letter to President Bush. "I leave knowing that we have made a positive difference and that we have set the agency on a course that will result in continued environmental improvement."
A copy of the letter was released by the EPA. Whitman's resignation is effective on June 27.
