MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Trump administration’s top environmental official for the Southeast has resigned after being indicted on state ethics charges.

Environmental Protection Agency Chief of Staff Ryan Jackson told agency employees that Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler accepted Trey Glenn’s resignation on Sunday.

Glenn had served as the regional administrator for the EPA office that oversees eight Southeastern states.

The Alabama Ethics Commission last week announced that Glenn was indicted on multiple charges along with a former Alabama Environmental Management Commission member. Glenn previously served as the director of the Alabama environmental agency.

Copies of the indictment were not available Monday in public court files.

Jackson said that Mary Walker will serve as the Acting Regional Administrator for EPA’s Region 4 office. Walker had served as the deputy regional administrator since June.
