Management Nominations Continuing Apace

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's announced a new head of its federal sector programs, and the Obama administration is pushing along some management nominations, sending Rafael Borras' name to the Senate for consideration as undersecretary for management at the Department of Homeland Security and George Cohen to head the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. I'm glad to see the administration is getting down to filling some of these positions, and I'll be even gladder when they start getting confirmed. Right now, Christine Griffin's nomination to be deputy director of the Office of Personnel Management has become something of a bellwether for me: when she gets confirmed, I'll be convinced things are moving along.
