Another petition to the USDA

Even though Food Democracy Now’s petition for getting a true reform candidate as the head of the US Department of Agriculture didn’t get one of their candidates chosen, they have a new petition to encourage appointment of key people to under-secretary jobs – the people who actually do the work of the department. There are more than 60,000 signatures so far.

I signed it right away – how about you?

  1. Tracy,

    I applaud Food Democracy Now’s objectives and supported their initial petition. This slate of candidates for under-secretary positions also appears well-qualified, but feels overweighted toward policy wonks, lacking anyone from the packaged food industry. Perhaps I can get my name on the list!

  2. We should start a letter writing campaign!
