Al Armendariz, the agency's regional administrator for Texas, Oklahoma and four neighboring states, resigned in a letter yesterday to Administrator Lisa Jackson, according to Jackson's email statement to Region 6 staff. She also said she intends to travel to Dallas "in the coming days" to show her support for them.
