Pete Buttigieg is now the nominee for Secretary of Transportation. “I am nominating him for Secretary of Transportation,” tweeted President-elect Joe Biden. “Because he’s equipped to take on the challenges at the intersection of jobs, infrastructure, equity, and climate.” The tweet received more than 65,000 “hearts emoticon’ within an hour.
This time last year, Pete Buttigieg sat down with Career Communications Group CEO and publisher Tyrone Taborn (right in photo), after an op-ed on an old video began trending on Twitter.

Also pictured is Rayondon Kennedy, managing director of Career Communications Group.
