Education Committee Co-Chair Doug McCrory Congratulates Commissioner Cardona on Nomination to Serve as U.S. Secretary of Education

State Senator Doug McCrory (D-Hartford) today issued the following statement on the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

“The inauguration of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President gives our nation the steady leadership we need to deliver relief to struggling families and build back our economy from the devastation of COVID-19. Further, this is an opportunity to address long-existing inequalities in our institutions from criminal justice reform to addressing health disparities in underserved communities. I hope this opportunity is used to the fullest to give people a renewed sense of optimism.

I want to also acknowledge the history that has been made today in seeing Kamala Harris become the first woman, the first Black American and the first South Asian American to serve as Vice President. It is my hope that today is a message to so many young people that they too can aspire to serve in the highest offices of our country. As my Madam Vice President said she may be the first, but she won’t be the last.”
