Dear Mr. President, the signers of this petition strongly encourage you to appoint the Honorable Robert B. Reich as the new Secretary of the Treasury. Professor Reich is the right person to head up the recovery of our economy and lead our country to a more, balanced, fair, prosperous economic future. Professor Reich's experience, knowledge and optimism are what we need to put our economy on the right track both nationally and internationally. Professor's Reich' credentials include (from Wikepedia.com): Reich is currently Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He was formerly a professor at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government[4] and professor of social and economic policy at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management of Brandeis University. He has also been a contributing editor of The New Republic, The American Prospect (also chairman and founding editor), Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

Professor Reich will lead with an economic agenda of jobs first and then a balanced approach to deficit reduction. And, as you know, Professor Reich is smart enough to know that by building the middle class, we build America. Our prayers and good wishes are with you Mr. President! Lets move forward with change we can believe in! Thank you.Explain why someone should support this petition
