PRESIDENT TO NOMINATE GLYNN FOR DEPUTY SECRETARY OF LABOR
(Washington, DC) The President announced today his intention to nominate Thomas Glynn of Belmont, Massachusetts for the post of Deputy Secretary of Labor. Glynn is currently Brown University's Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration.
"One of the most important things we need to do in this Administration is learn how to manage the government better," said President Clinton. "I've pledged to save $9 billion by controlling administrative costs. Thomas Glynn has the kind of experience managing large institutions -- both public and private -- that is needed to make that happen."
Glynn has served at Brown since April 1991. Prior to that he was the General Manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, General Manager of the World Trade Center Boston, Deputy Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Welfare, and Assistant Dean of the Florence Heller Graduate School at Bradeis University. He served in a variety of positions in the Carter Administration. Glynn's public service began with two years as a VISTA volunteer in South Boston.
Glynn is a resident of Belmont, MA.
