The National Air Traffic Controllers Association congratulates Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx on his nomination as Transportation Secretary. Mayor Foxx has a strong record of public service and will bring a fresh perspective to the infrastructure challenges facing our country. We look forward to working with him once confirmed on the vital issues involving our National Airspace System. NATCA also thanks Secretary Ray LaHood, who has served during the safest period in aviation history. His leadership and intense focus on safety has been an inspiration to all of us. We congratulate him on a job very well done and wish him the best in his future plans.
