As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
A key Trump administration official working on civil service reform abruptly resigned Friday after less than seven months on the job.
The reason for Office of Personnel Management Director Jeff Pon’s departure as leader of the nation’s civil service was not immediately clear. OPM’s email system was down Friday, and many workers left early for Columbus Day weekend, leaving workers in the dark.
“A lot of us still don’t know” the reason Pon resigned, an OPM spokesman told the Washington Examiner.
The following notice was posted on the White House website Friday:
President Donald J. Trump today announced his intent to designate the following individual to a key position in his Administration:
Margaret Weichert of Georgia, to be the Acting Director of the Office of Personnel Management.
Ms. Weichert currently serves as the Senate-confirmed Deputy Director for Management at the Office of Management and Budget in the Executive Office of the President. She will assume the Office of Personnel Management duties in addition to her current duties at the Office of Management and Budget.
Under cover of the Kavanaugh vote, the White House says that Jeff Pon is out at OPM and is being replaced by Deputy Director for Management Margaret Weichert. pic.twitter.com/65M8g1xxm1
