NARFE Disheartened by OPM Director Resignation
March 17, 2020

Alexandria, Va. – In response to media reports announcing the resignation of OPM Director Dale Cabaniss, NARFE National President Ken Thomas issued the following statement:

“At a time when federal employees are on the front lines of a public health crisis, the federal community needs leadership. As the nation grapples with the uncertainties facing us during this pandemic, federal employees are trying to protect both their families and our country. I am disappointed that the department responsible for keeping Feds informed and out of harm’s way is again without a director. This is now the second time this agency has lacked a Senate-confirmed director in the middle of a national emergency, the other of which was the unprecedented 35-day government shutdown. As with her predecessors, NARFE enjoyed a professional and productive relationship with Director Cabaniss, and we wish her the best in the future. I urge the President to quickly nominate a successor to lead the federal community during this difficult time.”
