Conners Replaced as Head of JSC External Relations

Keith's note: Ellen Engelman Conners has been replaced as Director of External Relations at JSC. Connors got the civil service job back in 2008 through her political connections with the Bush Administration. Conners came to NASA willl no formal PAO experience and was previously employed at the FCC after declining to be reappointed to the NTSB. According to various news reports, her tenure at NTSB was somewhat contentious and uncomfortable - which is how people at NASA have described her tenure at JSC.
