The White House has confirmed today that Labor Secretary Hilda Solis will not return for President Barack Obama’s second term.
Prior to her confirmation as Secretary of Labor, Solis served as a member of Congress, representing the 32nd Congressional District in California from 2001 to 2009.
During her time in Congress, Solis’ priorities included expanding access to affordable health care, protecting the environment and improving the lives of working families.
In a statement, Obama called Solis “a tireless champion for working families.”
“Over the last four years, Secretary Solis has been a critical member of my economic team as we have worked to recover from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression and strengthen the economy for the middle class,” he said.
“Her efforts have helped train workers for the jobs of the future, protect workers’ health and safety and put millions of Americans back to work.”
