Secretary Perdue announced three administrators today, including FSA's Fordyce, formerly SED in Missouri. It's only 16 months since the inauguration, but who's counting? I remember Randy Weber was acting Administrator for a number of months after Clinton's inauguration. I suspect the appointment process is taking longer and longer; someday we'll see an administrator appointed when she has less than 2 years to serve.
(I see the president of NASCOE is also from Missouri, for what it's worth.)
