Regard for the Career Staff I
President Trump has been slow to fill the slots for political appointees in the executive branch, and Dems have been slow to confirm those he's appointed. That means the various Secretaries have found themselves dealing with career executives a lot, or working without support. I've wondered what the effect will be.
In the case of HUD apparently the result has been to raise the civil service in Carson's eyes: GovExec reports that Secretary Carson is praising the career employees at HUD.
