Friday Personnel Moves

By Ed O'Keefe

Amid the day's other big developments, a few other personnel moves announced Friday by Team Obama:

• The president tapped Cassandra Q. Butts to serve as senior adviser and CEO of the Millennium Challenge Corporation. She's currently White House deputy counsel, focusing especially on judicial nominations.

• The Senate confirmed David Ferriero on Friday as the 10th Archivist of the United States. He previously served as the director of the New York Public Library. "Once again, after searching the nation for the best candidate in the nation for an important job, President Obama found him working in New York City government," New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said in a statement. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, urban affairs adviser Adolfo Carrion Jr. and CDC Director Thomas Frieden all previously held Big Apple city government jobs.
