I have had conversations with about half of the team over the years. I even went to college with one of the team members. I just looked at the LinkedIn profiles for those named and the backgrounds seem to be a departure from the Obama years. Looking forward to seeing the results of their work. I appreciate their commitment to education and stepping up to volunteer for such an important national role.
