She says they were her top choices. The former CIA officer, who worked in Western Europe recruiting spies and specializing in counter terrorism and nuclear proliferation says foreign affairs is a good fit.
“I hope my perspective of having spent time overseas working on behalf of the United States government is something that will be helpful to my colleagues. I hope it will allow me to make good, sound informed decisions.”
As for the House Agriculture Committee, she says it will focus on policy and food security issues.
“I’m excited about playing a strong role in assuring that kids in school aren’t going hungry and that families know that they reliably eat more than their basic, basic needs.”
