White House names new chief usher

The White House is a transitory place: presidents come and go at least every eight years and staff members often exit faster than that. But the job of White House Chief Usher is traditionally a much longer commitment. In fact, there have only been eight individuals to hold that role since the 1800's.

Now Angella Reid is set to become the ninth. Reid, the first woman to get the job, is currently the General Manager at The Ritz-Carlton in nearby Pentagon City, Virginia and has 25 years of hotel management experience.

According to the White House, Reid will oversee all operations pertaining to the Executive Residence. She will also be in charge of maintaining close relationships with the White House Historical Association, the Committee for the Preservation of the White House and the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts.

Reid was not immediately available for interviews.

      I think he drank too much tea at his new job for Faux and was given a time out by the White House.

    @Rick...you never cease to amaze! The VERY fact you spend everyday criticizing this president, would make it plainly obvious to any semi-intelligent person ...OBAMA IS NOT A DICTATOR. !
    Try being a citizen of Syria or Iran, criticize one of those presidents like you do Obama, and REALLY find out what a dictator is.

    Do you think an person with a half a brain would believe your drivel? You sir are a train wreck of fox splatter, and it stinks like low tide in Denmark.

    Try desperately, Just Once, to post a sensible comment. It just may initiate a decent discussion ,where the rest of us don't feel just a little dumber for reading your silly and baseless comments.
