Washington, D.C.— Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) issued the following statement on the nomination of Robert A. “Bob” McDonald to be the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs:

“I look forward to meeting Mr. McDonald, and discussing my ideas for transforming the VA into a 21st-century, veteran-centric, mission-driven organization. Like me, Mr. McDonald has spent much of his career in the private sector, which gives me hope that he will bring a fresh perspective and renewed drive to confront the problems facing the VA.”
