Governor Whitmer Statement on Mayor Pete Buttigieg Nomination to Secretary of Transportation
LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer released the following statement after President-Elect Biden nominated Mayor Pete Buttigieg for Secretary of Transportation:
"This is great news for our families, our businesses, and our nation's economy. Every American deserves to drive to work and drop their kids at school safely, without blowing a tire or cracking a windshield. Mayor Buttigieg has shown a deep commitment to getting things done for Americans everywhere, and I know he will work around the clock to fix and protect our nation's infrastructure. President-Elect Biden has proven once again that he is committed to building an administration that represents the great diversity of our nation, with more women, more people of color, and more members of the LGBTQ+ community at the table. I look forward to working closely with Mayor Buttigieg and the entire Biden Administration to fix the damn roads and protect Michiganders from shelling out hundreds of dollars a year on car repairs. Let's get to work."
