Van Jones discusses his White House position
Van Jones discussed his position as the White House Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the 2010 Campus Progress National Conference.

During the conference, Jones was asked how he could be sure that the push for green jobs would continue even in his absence. Here is part of his response:
“The good thing is that the agenda continues…the Department of Energy is still as committed…sometimes you have to separate ego and your individual quest for redemption from what’s best for the country.”
The more I see of Jones, the more I like him. He did what was best for the country in stepping down from the position but by stepping down he did not step away from the green jobs movement
. He is still a vocal advocate for green collar jobs and I’m positive that he will continue to be a strong figure in the movement for years to come.
