Mr. Johnson has had a long and varied career in environmental engineering and public health. He has had the responsibility of managing and administering programs reflecting every concern for the environment, including pesticides, air pollution, water, radiation, solid waste, food and drugs, occupational health, and community sanitation. As the Administrator of the Environmental Health Service in the former U.S. Department of HEW, and the Assistant Commissioner of Health for New York City, he gained an indepth knowledge and and understanding of Federal, State, Local, public, and industry relationships recognizing their functions, responsibilities and authorities. He is familiar with public policy, rules, and guidelines associated with environmental programs, some of which he helped to develop during his career in and following his retirement from Federal Service. At the Federal Level, he has managed multiple faceted environmental programs involving several professional disciplines, annual budgets up to $500 million (budgets included program and construction activities) and a maximum total staff of nearly 11,000 persons. His government service activities and responsibilities enabled him to acquire an intimate knowledge of, and experience with, the Federal government process; and a reputation as a sound manager and administrator. These experiences have given him the hands-on opportunity to develop, direct, and administer environmental activities associated with program development, research, enforcement programs, monitoring for compliance, provisions of technical support and training, establishment of information systems, systems analysis and interaction with the public and community groups; he is a retired Assistant Surgeon General of the USPHS and former Administrator of the Environmental Health Service.
