Promotion questionable

Regarding the news story “Head of Allegheny County's air quality program named to new deputy health director post” (Nov. 26 and TribLIVE.com): We all would like to see Allegheny County Health Department people promoted based on aggressive (not passive) performance and accomplishment.

Given that a University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health report says Allegheny County air quality is cancerously seated somewhere in the top 2 percent in the United States for risk (due to air pollution that makes us sick or worse and that we read about in a host of stories), someone independently needs to see if these kinds of promotions are merited or even make good health sense, and what we are doing to get off that top-2-percent level.

The Allegheny County Health Department needs corrective action, not promotion.
