Vilsack to continue as ag secretary
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the following statement Jan. 14 regarding the announcement that he will continue his service in the Obama administration.
“President Obama and I share a deep appreciation for rural America and its unlimited potential in the years ahead to feed a growing world population, revolutionize America’s energy, further protect our natural resources, and create more jobs here at home. We will continue to urge Congress to pass a Food, Farm, and Jobs Bill that will help us continue USDA’s [U.S. Department of Agriculture] wide range of efforts to support this work. As we look ahead to a promising future in our small towns and rural communities, I am pleased to continue working alongside President Obama to grow more opportunity in rural America.”
