High Five, Mr. PresidentPosted: March 16, 2009
In his weekly address yesterday, President Obama emphasized the growing importance of food safety by announcing the addition of a cabinet like advisory – the Food Safety Working Group.
This advisory consists of other cabinet members and senior officials who will report exclusively to the president on how to improve food safety laws as well as provide efficient government oversight to make sure the laws are enforced.
Although he has not disclosed an exact list of names, we know the new Working Group will include his pick for Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, Dr. Margaret Hamburg – the former Commissioner of Heath for New York City from 1991 to 1997.
Awesome, great job Mr. President.
