You know Eric Holder Jr. would have really been in big trouble if the Boys & Girls Clubs of America had opposed his confirmation for Attorney general.
Though it’s hardly a big deal– it would have been if it opposed him — the club has written the Senate Judiciary and praised Holder’s nomination.
In a letter dated Jan. 12, the group’s president and chief executive Roxanne Spillett, wrote:
“It is with great pride that, on behalf of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), I send this letter in support of Mr. Eric Holder on his nomination as Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Holder understands the value of working in the community as a tool to help prevent and reduce crime in some of the most distressed cities and neighborhoods in this country. He has a proven track record of doing so throughout his career, especially as it relates to his work with BGCA.Boys & Girls Clubs of America has enjoyed a strong partnership with Congress and the Department of Justice for a number of years. We provide programs and services for thousands of young people in some of the most distressed
communities.”
