(WASHINGTON, DC) November 28, 2016 – Today, Lolita Zinke joined President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Veterans Administration (VA) landing team. In this role, Mrs. Zinke will assess the agency top to bottom in order to identify opportunities for overhaul and improvement during the first 100 days.
“Nothing is more near to my heart than caring for our troops. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve in such a crucial part of this Administration,” said Lolita Zinke, wife of Congressman Ryan Zinke and member of the Trump campaign’s Hispanic and women’s outreach committees. “As a military wife and mom, I have personally seen the challenges that our veterans and our men and women in uniform face when dealing with the VA. There are many changes that need to be made to ensure that those who fight for our country are getting the care they need and deserve. I am excited to be part of such a pivotal moment for them.”
“My wife Lola is the most intelligent and caring person I know,” said Congressman Ryan Zinke. “I am so proud of the work she did throughout President-elect Trump’s campaign, and I am even more proud to see her hard work and dedication recognized by the future Administration. She understands the Veterans Administration on a deeply personal level and there is no doubt in my mind that she will help to create a smooth transition between Administrations and make sure that President-elect Trump keeps VA reform one of his top priorities.”
