Governor Thanks Director of Department of Environmental Quality for Service, Search for Replacement Begins

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead announced that the Director of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), John Corra, is retiring. Corra has headed the DEQ since March 2003. His last day will be in October.

“It has been a pleasure working with John. He has a keen mind. Under his leadership DEQ has established a reputation for reasonable regulation and a professional approach,” Governor Mead said. “I believe he has set a standard for effective and balanced regulation with fiscal prudence.”

“I am thankful for the opportunity to serve Wyoming and its citizens over the past nine and a half years and for the trust of two Governors. The relationships with environmental stakeholders, legislators, co-regulators, colleagues and most of all the great employees of the DEQ will not soon be forgotten.  It has been an honor to serve, and while I still enjoy the challenges, it is now time for me to move on to the next phase of my life and career,” Corra said.

Governor Mead has asked those interested in the position to submit a letter of interest and a resume to Governor Matt Mead, 200 West 24th Street, Cheyenne, WY 82002.
