Scott Pruitt is gone. His legacy endures.

Donald Trump's EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, was nominated and appointed to gut the agency from the inside, to undermine efforts to protect our coastlines, guarantee clean air and water, and fight climate change.

The dominoes are falling. Just today, Scott Pruitt resigned as head of Donald Trump's EPA.

When I wrote to you earlier this year about Pruitt's time at the EPA, the responses I got were exactly what I expected.

Our Long Island neighbors (and, well, just about everyone) were fed up with the scandals, corruption, and Pruitt's anti-environment agenda.

And you know what else? They were SICK of Congressman Lee Zeldin's unconscionable silence about it all. He has been complicit in this all-out attack on our environment and public health.

Now the real fight begins.

What are the odds that Donald Trump's next nominee to head the EPA will be cut from the same cloth as Scott Pruitt? Fairly high, I'd guess.

We must keep up the pressure. We must not back down.

That's exactly why I'm running. In Congress, I will fight for our children's health, protect our clean air and water, and work to reverse the devastating effects of climate change.

Our very lives and future are at stake.
