Our partners at The Fair World Project have a new piece up at Medium, by Campaign Director, Kerstin Lindgren.
Donald Trump waited until two days before his inauguration to nominate a Secretary of Agriculture, ending weeks of speculation, and leaving very little time for the nominee to prepare to head the department that oversees our food supply and a $155 billion dollar budget. This delay indicates that Trump does not place high value on our food and agriculture system. Had he valued the agriculture system, he would have appointed a department head on a timeline that allowed the nominee to prepare for the job.
But what of the nominee himself?
