President Barack Obama has nominated Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx to head the Department of Transportation in his second-term Cabinet.
“I know Anthony’s experience will make him an outstanding Transportation Secretary. He’s got the respect of his peers, mayors and governors all across the country. And as a consequence, I think that he’s going to be extraordinarily effective,” the president said at the White House ceremony on Monday.
Foxx, who has served as mayor of Charlotte since 2009, has spearheaded several major infrastructure projects in the city and rose to prominence after bringing the Democratic National Convention to Charlotte last year.
