Statement On Resignation Of Paul O'Neill


Statement by Michele Davis, Treasury Department Spokesman

As he told the senior staff this morning, there are lots of other important things to do in life. Back in December of 2000, he was planning to retire and devote himself to improving health care and education in Pittsburgh. I'm sure he will return to those important projects.

He told the senior staff that he appreciated their support, wisdom and energy. He encouraged them to remain focused and true to their sworn responsibilities.

This resignation will be effective some time in the next few weeks. We don't have a fixed date at this time.

ENDS
