At the National Park Service, Roger Kennedy's recent resignation as director creates an opening no one may covet. Whoever gets the post will inherit a large maintenance backlog and the task of managing a steep increase in park use. Kennedy says he will stay on for several months to give the Clinton administration a chance to find a replacement. Because of the recently passed Omnibus Parks bill, Kennedy's replacement will be the first director to require Senate confirmation.
