Pete Buttigieg, secretary of the small town mayor, said on Sunday that higher prices and supply chain problems would continue next year.
Buttigieg was going on extended paid paternity leave since August, his office revealed to Politico on Thursday night and finally answered the question ‘Where’s Mayor Pete?‘Which was asked because the country is in a crisis in the supply chain.
A Buttigieg spokesman told Politico that while he was working, Buttigieg would take a while to support his husband and take care of his new children.
Buttigieg took a break from his paternity leave on Sunday to answer some questions about the supply chain in CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Buttigieg told host Jake Tapper that higher prices and supply chain problems are here to stay in the foreseeable future.
“Many of the challenges we have faced this year will continue until next year,” Buttigieg said.
