Congresswoman Louise Slaughter

Representing the 25th District of New York

Slaughter Statement on Withdrawal of Labor Secretary Nominee Andrew Puzder

February 15, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-25) today released this statement after Andrew Puzder’s withdrawal from consideration as Secretary of the Department of Labor nominee:

“From the moment he was first nominated, it was glaringly obvious that Andrew Puzder was not the right person to lead the Department of Labor. Like the majority of this president’s other cabinet nominees, Mr. Puzder’s record raised serious doubts about his ability to address the important issues facing average Americans, to say nothing of the multiple scandals that dogged his nomination. The president should nominate someone to lead the Labor Department who actually believes in supporting our workforce.”
