Along with all Census Bureau employees, I am deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic death of two Census Bureau employees who were killed during Tuesday's terrorist attacks. Marion Britton, assistant regional director, and Waleska Martinez, automation specialist, both assigned to our New York regional office, were passengers on the plane that crashed outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. They were both on official travel enroute to an agency meeting.
Our hearts go out to their families and friends as well as to their co-workers. This is truly a sad time for the Census family.
