In my 2nd round of Qs, WH Budget Dir nominee @neeratanden committed to rushing resources for rural health in Georgia. She also pledged to take personal responsibility for timely completion of the Port of Savannah deepening and to keep Savannah Mayor @VanRJohnson in the loop.
Today, as I was sworn in, I held in my jacket pocket copies of the ships’ manifests recorded at Ellis Island when my Great Grandfather Israel arrived in 1911 and my Great Grandmother Annie arrived in 1913. A century later, their great grandson was elected to the U.S. Senate. https://t.co/cjTNMMfYwP
