Secretary Nielsen Statement on the Confirmation of Pete Gaynor

Release Date: 
October 12, 2018

“Yesterday, the Senate confirmed Pete Gaynor to be Deputy Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). With the 2018 hurricane season fully underway, Pete’s confirmation could not have come at a more critical time. His experience as both a state and local emergency manager, combined with more than two decades of service in the United States Marine Corps, make him an invaluable addition to the Administrator’s leadership team at FEMA. Deputy Administrator Gaynor will immediately get to work helping the many Americans recently devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Michael across the East Coast.  I look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead to support the men and women of FEMA as they carry out their missions.”
