As is usually the case when U.S. presidents begin second terms, several of President Obama’s cabinet heads are stepping down. Brownfield recently asked Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack if he plans to continue in that position in Obama’s second term.
“I love this job and I think it’s a great privilege and honor to have it—and I’ll have it as long as the President is satisfied with the job,” Vilsack says. “I have a big certificate that says I serve at his pleasure—so I’m going to continue to work as long as he’s satisfied with what I’m doing.”
Vilsack adds that there are no better people to work for than those who live in small towns and on farms and ranches across rural America.
