Sanchez Statement on Nomination of Thomas Perez to Lead Labor Department


Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (Ca-46) today released the following statement in response to the nomination of Thomas Perez to head the Labor Department, announced by President Obama this morning.

"By nominating Thomas Perez to lead the Department of Labor, President Obama has chosen a proven and experienced leader who will continue to protect and advance the rights of working Americans," said Sanchez. "Mr. Perez has strong experience, having previously served as secretary of Maryland's Labor Department, and in his current capacity at the Department of Justice. He will succeed one of our nation's most effective Labor Secretaries, my good friend Hilda Solis, who was avigorous advocate for our nation's working men and women. I urge the Senate to move swiftly on his confirmation and am looking forward to working with Mr. Perez to continue to strengthen our labor laws."
