Presidential Nominations Sent to the Senate
NOMINATIONS SENT TO THE SENATE::
Linda A. Schwartz, of Connecticut, to be an Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs (Policy and Planning), vice Raul Perea-Henze, resigned.
Dr. Schwartz was Commissioner for Veterans Affairs for Connecticut. She's also a retired USAF flight nurse, and former president of the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs.
Now the Senate needs to see that Dr. Schwartz brings exactly what the Department of Veterans Affairs needs – leadership, compassion, dedication and dynamic personality. And, she has flown the C-123!
