  • Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Nally announced this week his resignation from the agency to pursue other opportunities. In announcing Nally’s resignation, Governor John Kasich said his energy advisor, Craig Butler would serve as interim director at the agency.

    “I am grateful for Scott’s service to the state and wish him well in his next endeavor,” said Kasich. “For the past three years, Scott worked hard to keep Ohioans and our environment safe, but he also helped begin to make the agency more business-friendly.”

    Currently, Butler serves as a senior policy advisor for the administration on environmental, energy, public utility, and agricultural issues, and has worked closely with the corresponding agencies. Butler previously served as District Director of both Ohio EPA’s Central District Office and its Southeast District Office. He is a board member of the Dangerous Wild Animal Board and is a past member of the Board of Directors for the Ohio Alliance for the Environment.
