Who will be the next EPA Administrator under a Barack Obama or John McCain presidency?

Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo would be an excellent administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). She has 18 years experience at the agency and a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She was a leader at EPA's International Activities Office and organized the agency's participation in then First Lady Hillary Clinton's Beijing Summit. She also coordinated the activities and meetings for the Gore/Mbeki Commission, which was a biannual meeting exchange between the American and South African vice presidents. She even recruited AAEA to organize boat tours on the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers when the delegation met in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Coleman-Adebayo is bipartisan and worked with Republicans (James Sensenbrenner and John Warner) and Democrats (Sheila Jackson-Lee and Joe Lieberman) to get national legislation passed [NO FEAR Act of 2002], which was signed by President Bush on May 15, 2002. Either Senator Barack Obama or Senator John McCain would be well served to appoint Dr. Adebayo as EPA administrator when one of them becomes president.

She is married to Sheygoon Adebayo and has two children, Sheena and Sade. She is a Maryland resident and is currently partnering with actor Danny Glover to produce a movie about her life. What a great ending to the movie it would be to show her leading the agency she has worked so hard to improve.

Finally, everyone at EPA knows that Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo has been thoroughly vetted.
