A former Obama administration official has quit his job as president of George Soros’ Open Society Foundation amid speculation that he will be appointed labor secretary.
He recently announced his departure.
“After four profound years of service to this extraordinary institution, and at a critical juncture for the democracy that is my home, I am compelled to charge once more unto the breech in a new political moment,” he wrote to his colleagues, according to Axios.
“Fundamental social change doesn’t customarily occur in a revolutionary moment. Instead, what is needed is the partnership of activists, government, and the nonprofit sector, collaborating over time and space in unity and solidarity. This is what I worked to do at Open Society. My commitment now will be to re-enter the world of politics and ideas, where I can continue the struggle against oppression everywhere,” he said in a statement.
