Statement from NYSDC Chair June O’Neill

New York State Democratic Committee Chair June O’Neil issued the following statement on Senator Hillary Clinton’s nomination as Secretary of State:

On behalf of the New York State Democratic Committee I would like to congratulate our Senator, Hillary Clinton, on her nomination to be the next Secretary of State.

We couldn’t be more proud of the work Senator Clinton has done on behalf of New Yorkers, and all Americans, over the past eight years. She has worked diligently to craft real solutions to our toughest challenges – fighting passionately expand healthcare, bolster the economy in upstate New York, make college tuition more affordable, and improve the treatment of the men and women who so bravely serve in our armed forces.

Senator Clinton’s relationships with world leaders and her intimate knowledge of global affairs will be a true asset to the new administration. Working alongside President-Elect Obama, Senator Clinton will help us turn the page on the Bush Administration’s disastrous handling of foreign policy and restore America’s standing in the world.
