OPM nominee withdraws

President Trump’s nominee to head the Office of Personnel Management has requested a withdrawal of his nomination.

President Trump’s nominee to head the Office of Personnel Management has requested a withdrawal of his nomination.

In a letter, posted online by Government Executive, George Nesterczuk said he was withdrawing because the “prospect” of his “favorable confirmation has been remote.”

Sixteen unions had written a joint letter to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee opposing Nesterczuk’s nomination, alleging that in his previous positions in federal government, he failed to protect workers and supported discriminatory practices.

In his letter to the president, Nesterczuk, said, “Recent partisan attacks threaten to delay further the consideration of my nomination,” adding, “These attacks are intended to prevent me, or anyone, from carrying out government reforms that the American people, and you, Mr. President, are rightly demanding.”

Currently, Nesterczuk is serving as the president of Virginia-based, Nesterczuk and Associates, which provides management consulting services. Previously he held multiple senior positions during the Reagan administration at OPM, DOD and the Transportation Department.

It is too bad that he was not appointed and woke up realizing that the swamp creatures are primarily the do nothing congress, senate, congressional staffers, SES and management bloat rather than the rank and file employees who in general try to accomplish great things even when obstacles are thrown their way.

You got it wrong the clogged drain of the swamp is congress, senate and their political minions, SES and management bloat.

I'm familiar with Mr. Nesterczuk work and think he was a great choice to run OPM. However, it is not surprising his no nonsense manner would have disturbed some union members. Regrettably, he decided to not endure the B.S. he would face in the nomination process. Too bad, he might have helped with the clogged drain [swamp].

OPM ONE THE MOST INCOMPETENT AND CORRUPT AGENCIES WITHIN THE FEDERAL GOV'T. WE NEED SOMEONE FROM THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO OVERHALL OPM = OFFICE OF POLITICAL MORONS.
