Victoria Kennedy, widow of Ted Kennedy, has been nominated by President Barack Obama for the board of governors for the United States Postal Service. The Associated Press reported that the news came from the White House on Feb. 12, 2014.

Vicki Kennedy hails from Crowley, Louisiana, and is indeed the widow of former Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died back in 2009. Ted Kennedy was a very big supporter, as a Democrat from Massachusetts, for the first presidential campaign of Obama.

Before fully going through, Victoria Kennedy's nomination must be confirmed by the Senate.

The USPS board of governors has the job of choosing the postmaster general. They also control the spending, planning, and policies of the postal service as a whole.

Vicki Kennedy has a long line of accomplishments in her life as she is a practicing lawyer and has co-founded the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. It is also known that she is on the board of trustees for the Kennedy Center.

Obama's nomination of Kennedy is one of nine positions that are appointed by the President of the United States for the Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Office.
