GSI Letter of Congratulations to Bonnie Jenkins

July 23, 2021

To: Under Secretary of State Bonnie Jenkins

From: The Nonpartisan Security Group

Dear Madame Under Secretary of State, Our dear friend Bonnie,

As fellow members of the Nonpartisan Security Group we appreciate that you will be taking leave of the Group while serving in the government. We wanted to let you know how we feel.

We wish to express our enthusiastic support for your appointment as Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security and our confidence that you are simply the best person at this challenging moment to represent our nation on the critical matters you will be addressing.

We are reminded that your unique experience, and successes, in the worlds of academics, law, philanthropy, diplomacy, intelligence, military, and technical application of cutting edge science, all for the common good, bode well for success going forward.

Several of us have had the opportunity to work with you. For nearly a decade you worked with Ambassador Thomas Graham at the Arms Control Disarmament Agency and his comment regarding his hiring you as a young woman sums up our feelings. “It was one of the best decisions I ever made.”

We believe President Biden will feel the same way in the future.

We remain available to support and serve to advance the success of your office as you might wish.
