Irene Plants and Privilege

FILE - In this Dec. 6, 2010 file photo, Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowitz smiles during a news conference in Montpelier, Vt. Two senior officials in Vermont’s Agency of Natural Resources are being criticized for having state game wardens and a vehicle rescue houseplants belonging to agency Secretary Deb Markowitz during the remnants of Hurricane Irene. Former employees say workers were dismayed in August 2011 that state resources were being devoted to a personal errand when Vermonters were still stranded, bodies were missing and the agency’s Waterbury office complex was flooded.
