The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson, announced Thursday her departure from the EPA.
Jackson, who has been rumored by some as a possible gubernatorial candidate, is the former head of New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection. She announced in a statement Thursday she will be stepping down from the EPA after nearly four years on the job.
Jackson told The New York Times during a brief interview Wednesday that she planned to do some consulting and public speaking in the future and that she had not begun looking for a new job. Jackson is rumored to be a candidate for the president of Princeton University, the Times reported.
Similarly, The Washington Post reported Princeton’s first female president, Shirley Tilghman, plans to step down from the post at the end of this academic year and that Jackson has been in talks with university officials about being a possible candidate for president, the Post reported.

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).- NJTV
