Another Email Scandal for the Chemical Safety Board
Before Engler was appointed by President Obama to CSB in 2014, he founded and directed the New Jersey Work Environment Council, “a collaboration of labor, community, and environmental organizations,” according to his CSB biography. He also served as an elected vice president of the New Jersey State Industrial Union Council, an AFL-CIO-affiliated organization.
Kevin Kosar, senior fellow at the R Street Institute, a free-market think tank in Washington, D.C., questioned Engler’s “I am working with the United Steelworkers” email.
“It says ‘I am working with.’ Not ‘we the board as a whole,’ not the civil servants who work at CSB,” he said. “It’s weird that a board member should be doing this.”
