“Secretary Vilsack’s open mind and his solid, proven experience would thoughtfully guide the agricultural sector through this public health emergency.” – MacKie
Washington, DC – The American Bakers Association (ABA)’s President and CEO Robb MacKie issued the following statement regarding President-elect Biden’s nomination of Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture.
“As we enter a new phase of the ongoing pandemic, it is critical for the agencies that support America’s food supply chain to transition smoothly. We look forward to working closely with Secretary Vilsack upon his return to the USDA as our Members continue feeding the country a safe, steady supply of baked goods. Importantly, under his leadership, we are confident the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will provide reliable and consistent support to the many families in need of its critical services.”
“Secretary Vilsack’s history of service to America’s agriculture sector spans decades and we congratulate him on his nomination to the USDA. His open mind and his solid, proven experience would thoughtfully guide the agricultural sector through this public health emergency.”
