Statement on the Appointment of Mayor Anthony Foxx as the Next Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“I can't think of a more qualified candidate to serve as the next Secretary of Transportation than Mayor Anthony Foxx. He has been a national leader in implementing critical infrastructure investments that drive job creation and a strong advocate for the critical transit projects that are vital to urban centers such as Chicago.  Secretary LaHood leaves big shoes to fill, and I have no doubt that Mayor Foxx will continue the President's legacy of rebuilding the foundations for America’s growth and our next great century."
