Subject: 5/26 Special Cx Update
I’ve been advised by HQ that my services as Cx PM are no longer required, effective immediately. Dale Thomas will be Acting PM until something more formal is issued from ESMD.
I do not want to leave without thanking all of you for five years of support in trying to rebuild NASA’s future. The multi-center, government/industry team we have built has made amazing progress in reaching for the Moon again.
Thank you all, j
