For Immediate Release
Office of the First Lady

Statement by Mrs. Laura Bush
Andi Ball has been by my side for the last ten years. As my Chief of Staff in Austin and here in Washington, I have come to rely on her advice and friendship. I appreciate all that she has done for me and The President. I wish her, and her husband, Lonnie all the best as Andi returns to Texas.
I would also like to thank Cathy Fenton for her service as White House Social Secretary during the last four years. From State Dinners to small receptions to all the Christmas parties, she has helped make sure visitors to the White House have a special time here and leave with fond memories. I appreciate her fine work and wish her well.
