Looking for info on Charlene Frizzera?

So am I.

The word from CMS is that the agency will not release a bio of Chief Operating Officer Charlene Frizzera until after she becomes acting administrator upon the inauguration of Barack Obama as president. CMS, like most federal agencies, will be closed Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and Tuesday for Inauguration Day, when Washington is effectively on lockdown, meaning that there won’t be any answers available until Wednesday.

The CMS press office referred me to Frizzera’s office in Baltimore, which then transferred me to the Office of the Administrator in Washington. That office then told me to check with the press office on Wednesday.

Even people from within CMS have been finding this site while searching for information on their new, short-term boss. I wish them luck—and a good long weekend.
