I look forward to working with him to have a smooth and orderly transition. I would like to thank the members of the South Carolina Congressional Delegation for their support over the past seven years. I would also like to add a very special thank you to President Obama and Congressman James Clyburn for having the confidence to select me for this position. I would also like to thank and commend the brave men and women of the U.S. Marshals Service of the District of South Carolina. I have truly been blessed to serve along their side. They are true patriots in every sense of the word.
