CONGRESSWOMAN STACEY PLASKETT STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF FEMA DIRECTOR BROCK LONG

Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett released the following statement after the resignation of FEMA Administrator Brock Log:

“I would like to thank Administrator Brock Long of FEMA for his service to this nation and to the Virgin Islands. I hope to work closely with the current acting Administrator and look forward to working with the permanent replacement when they are named. Brock Long has seen this nation respond and recover from 6 major hurricanes, 5 historic wildfires and dozens of other serious emergencies.

“The mission of FEMA is to help people before, during and after disasters. I look forward to working with FEMA in order to bring an orderly and systemic means of federal natural disaster assistance to not only the Virgin Islands but to state and local governments in the United States in an effort to carry out its responsibilities to aid all citizens.”
