Bob Lighthizer

Bob Lighthizer

Today, our friend and neighbor, Bob Lighthizer will be sworn in as the U.S. Special Trade Representative. He will be the President’s Principal Advisor on Trade Policy.

He was confirmed by wide bipartisan vote of 82-14 last Thursday.

While I may not agree with Bob all of the time, he is an outstanding choice. He is extremely bright, well-versed, and has a deep understanding of the enormously complex world of trade.

He served as the Deputy Trade Representative in the Reagan administration and previously had run the Senate Finance Committee for Senator Bob Dole.

He will do an outstanding job and is seeking to make some fundamental changes in our trade policy.

We wish him the best of luck!
