FCW Insider: Nancy Potter, RIP

We got word today that Nancy Potter, who served in government for 63 years, has passed away.

Nancy had retired in Dec. 2007 as the General Services Administration's longest-serving employee. A GSA legend, she played in a role in modernizing GSA's financial systems and in establishing the Federal Buildings Fund.

GSA gave Nancy a big send-off when she retired. To get a unique perspective on GSA and on public service, her eloquent farewell speech is definitely worth reading.
