Hi. I’m Sally Jewell, Secretary of the Interior
— and you’re watching This Week at Interior. THIS WEEK AT INTERIOR (Cheering and applause) A HEARTY AND HEARTFELT WELCOME FOR THE 51ST
SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR. EMPLOYEES REPRESENTING ALL OF INTERIOR’S BUREAUS AND AGENCIES CHEERED
AS SALLY JEWELL ARRIVED THIS WEEK FOR HER FIRST FULL DAY ON THE JOB… AND SHE TOLD
THE CROWD OF WELL WISHERS HOW MUCH SHE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THEM AS HER
COLLEAGUES. This is my first shot at public service. You
are all public servants, and there is no higher calling than the work that you all do, and
it is a privilege and pleasure to be among you….Thank you for this warm welcome…thank
you for everything that you do…and let’s have some fun together. (Cheering and applause.) SECRETARY JEWELL WAS SWORN IN LAST FRIDAY
BY RETIRED SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SANDRA DAY O’CONNOR…JUST A FEW HOURS LATER, SHE RECORDED
HER FIRST VIDEO MESSAGE TO THE 70,000 EMPLOYEES OF THE DEPARTMENT, WHOM SHE SAID SHE’S VERY
MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING IN HER TRAVELS. I’ll see you from coast to coast and we’ll
get out on some trails and maybe throw a few fishhooks in the water. We’ll maybe do some
bird watching and I look forward to learning from the scientists, the engineers, the tribal
elders, and the many other folks that we work with in this great department. AND THIS WEEK THE SECRETARY MET WITH INTERIOR
EMPLOYEES IN A TOWN HALL AT INTERIOR’S BISON BISTRO. NEXT WEEK ON MONDAY SECRETARY JEWELL
WILL HOST HER FIRST WEBCHAT WITH MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, TO CELEBRATE EARTH DAY, AND IN
RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL PARK WEEK. YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT AT WWW.DOI.GOV/LIVE. THAT’S THIS WEEK, AT INTERIOR.
