WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the government’s disaster relief agency says he has no intention of stepping aside, especially during Florence, despite being under investigation by a federal watchdog.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long says, “I’m here to serve my country every day. That’s all I do. And when it’s over, whenever it ends, I’m ready to go back home, love my family.”
Long says Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen (KEER’-sten) Nielsen “has never asked me to resign” from FEMA.
He says the two have a “very functional and professional relationship.”
