CNN is reporting that President-elect Joe Biden will nominate Pete Buttigieg to be his transportation secretary. This will elevate the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to a top post in the federal government.
Congrats to @PeteButtigieg on his appointment as Transportation Secretary! He will be the first Maltese-American in a President’s cabinet.
Looking forward to working with him to solve our train crossings and local bridge issues.

If this goes through, history will once again be made by the Biden-Harris administration even before the 20th January inauguration, as Buttigieg, who, as we all know has a Maltese father, would be the first Senate-confirmed LGBTQ Cabinet secretary.
The former mayor was considered for a host of other posts, including US ambassador to the United Nations and commerce secretary.
Looks like people have to brush up on their Boot-Edge-Edge practice again!
