According to the recent statement by the Washington, DC-based watchdog group who is paying for a portable billboard this week in Cincinnati urging Kroger. The concept is to remove former US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao from its board of directors.
While the bulletin board, arranged by Accountable.US, declares: “Kroger: Fresh to all? There’s nothing new about collusion. Bring down Elaine Chao.” They are displayed on the side of a truck that will drive around the national supermarket corporate headquarters on Vine Street in Cincinnati from Tuesday through Saturday, according to an Accountable.US spokesperson.
However, the organization, which lists exposing “corruption of the right” as one of its main initiatives, has notably opposed Zhao’s former service under former President Donald Trump.

“If Kroger was interested in living up to her values, she would not associate with Elaine Chao, let alone be chosen to serve on its board,” US President Kyle Herrig said in a statement. “Actions speak louder than words, and Krueger’s decision to raise the profile of a senior Trump official complicit in the former president’s anti-democratic and inhumane agenda speaks volumes.” Accountable.US pays for this mobile billboard in Cincinnati and urged Kroger to remove former US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao from its board of directors. A Kroger executive expressed disappointment with the capital-based organization’s bulletin board in a statement to The Courier Journal on Tuesday.
Here is the official statement by the officials “Eileen Chao’s career in service to our country and causes such as the United Way and Peace Corps will bring a diverse set of boardroom skills and perspectives. And we are proud that the Kroger Board reflects the diversity of our communities and workforces,” said Keith Dailey, Kroger Group Vice President for Corporate Affairs. It is disappointing that this Washington-based political organization has chosen to engage in partisan political attacks rather than celebrate diversity on the company’s board of directors.
