Description

Just days after the Senate’s rejection of his nomination to retain his post as the head of the Government Printing Office, William Boarman has appointed a woman to the position of deputy public printer. On Tuesday, the GPO announced that Davita Vance-Cooks, current chief of staff to the public printer, would step in as deputy public printer. Vance-Cooks will be the first woman to hold the leadership position in the agency’s 150-year history. “I want to appoint a deputy; I have the right to do that under Title 44,” Boarman told The Hill on Tuesday. “So she’ll be serving as deputy and if I do leave, there will be a real nice transition because under the law, the deputy automatically becomes the acting public printer. So GPO will have good effective leadership going forward; there won’t be any break in that.”
