Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) On The Nomination Of Tom Perez To Be Secretary Of Labor


Location: Unknown

"Tom Perez will bring an impressive resume to the top spot at the Department of Labor. A former Secretary of Labor in Maryland, and a fierce defender of workers' rights and civil rights, Tom is uniquely suited to serve in this important post at a critical time when Congress will be considering issues like immigration reform, reducing unemployment, and continuing our economic recovery. He is a dedicated public servant, and since 2009, he has worked hard to restore the reputation of the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department. I look forward to his confirmation and to working with him in this new role."
