The Eye, after ditching plans to attend a different event, found himself near the Commerce Department today as President-elect Obama named Bill Richardson as the next secretary of commerce. So after sampling the tasty fare at the Ronald Reagan Building’s food court, he sampled the opinions of some rank-and-file Commerce Department employees, to see what they think of their next boss.
A six-year employee of the Import Administration said he’s “really thrilled” by the pick and noted that Commerce Department employees can bid for the opportunity to have lunch with the secretary as part of the Combined Federal Campaign. “I’m just thrilled to hear that there’s finally a secretary I’d like to have lunch with,” he said.
