Retired Navy Vice Admiral Conrad C. Lautenbacher has told his staff that he is going to be leaving. Lautenbacher is the undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere. He also serves as the eighth administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

He was appointed Dec. 19, 2001. He will leave at the end of October. On his departure his deputy administrator, William J. Brennan, will become acting administrator.

Here is the note sent to his NOAA staff:

This note is to inform you that as the Administration comes to a close and after almost seven years of service as Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and theNOAA Administrator, I will be leaving this position as of October 31. It has been an extreme pleasure and privilege to serve in this capacity and I am most grateful for your support and interest during these years. I intend to relocate to the Atlanta area in the near future and look forward to remaining active in a number of areas. I hope that we will maintain our connection in the future (email to be provided). With many thanks and best wishes for your future success!

Many politicals making their way…
