President-elect Obama to nominate an agriculture secretary committed
to reform. I've signed it, as you can see, and if you share the goals
the letter outlines, I hope you will too. Thanks for considering it.
We would like to invite to sign this live petition effort to encourage
President-Elect Obama to consider a Sustainable Choice for our next Secretary of Agriculture.

Time is of the essence…
