RENO, NV - The head of the Veterans Administration Office in Reno has been on leave since July 9, according to an announcement Tuesday by new VA Director Robert McDonald, during a visit to Reno.

Cathy Malin is running the Reno office for the time being; it hasn't been announced whether she is a permanent replacement for Ed Russell.

In the wake of complaints about wait times at veterans offices around the country, Senator Dean Heller of Nevada called Reno's office the worst in the nation. He and Congresswoman Dina Titus have asked for Russell's resignation.
