Theres a new person in charge at the presidents pad Angella Reid, just named the next chief usher of the White House.
Currently general manager of the Ritz-Carlton at Pentagon City, Reid will run the household staff and grounds at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. a job that has inspired some long tenures: Born in Jamaica, Reid will be only the ninth usher since 1885, and the first woman. The last usher, Stephen W. Rochon, left this year to join the Department of Homeland Security, the White House said.

Oh My: I am just so surprised that Obama would pick a Black Woman to be usher at the White House.
Born in Jamaica, so they are giving a foreign born person access to some very sensitive areas and information.
ahh yes, after posting I thought people would raise BO himiself. But you are right, its not even limited to the White House.
At least Jamaica isn’t a terrorist sponsoring country.
Chief White House Usher. A title that is actually a prestigious position, but sounds like a crappy job....like Supreme Court Clerk.
Is it just me?...what does running a household staff have to do with homeland security?
I hope she’s up to counting the silverware when these grifters leave the premises in 2013.
So, what school for Communist thugs did SHE graduate from?
Well, at least she doesn’t look angry. That’s always a good thing.
Wow! I feel safer already.
I'm willing to bet that the position comes with a pretty generous taxpayer-funded salary.
I am really, really getting sick of this drift toward the overall appearance of monarchy in the White House - Democrat and Republican alike. We had better think about getting someone in the Oval Office who will dial this waaaaay back and inject some effin’ humility into the Federal Government.
Probably carries a nice retirement package.
Angella Reid currently is General Manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, Arlington, Virginia. Previously, she served in management positions at The Ritz-Carlton properties in Miami, Florida and Washington, D.C.

When she started training with me in 1978, I saw tremendous potential in her. I encouraged her to take up one of the scholarships to Germany and she did. Angella has never looked back, Dwyer said.
As Chief Usher, Reid will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the operations and activities within the Executive Residence and on the Executive Residence grounds. Among her many responsibilities, Reid will oversee management of the Executive Residence to ensure activities and resources are used efficiently and effectively.
