It’s always nice to hear positive comments about your work from the people on the other side of the bargaining table. Senators Hill and Litzow are quoted in this story about my confirmation in the Redmond Reporter.
Normally a Senate confirmation isn’t all that big a deal, but many of you may be aware there was a pretty high-profile non-confirmation of the Secretary of Transportation last week, so other cabinet officials were surprised when I had such an easy time of it.
Many Senators said nice things about me on the floor of the Senate. Some of them are even true. I’m thankful for all of it, and perhaps most thankful for all the stuff people made up. 🙂
