After 10 months of waiting to be confirmed as GSA administrator, Martha Johnson wasn’t about to let a little snowstorm to stop her from taking the oath of office.
On Sunday evening, Johnson was sworn into office–by telephone–at her home in Annapolis, Md. The oath was performed by Acting Administrator Steve Leeds and Johnson’s husband, Steve, reportedly served as a witness.
Johnson was confirmed as the agency’s first permanent and Senate-confirmed administrator on Thursday after enduring a long hold by Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo.
