DELEGATE TAKES A NEW NAME

The name game has come to an end with an announcement Friday afternoon that the delegate to Congress will now be officially known as Donna M. Christian-Christensen — but she refers to herself on second reference as "Delegate Christensen."
Though friends said immediately after her New Year’s Eve marriage to St. Croix native and longtime friend Christian “Olie” Christensen that she would take his name as her own, speculation continued.
But according to a release from her office, "Delegate Christensen was sworn into the 106th Congress bearing her new name in a Capitol Hill ceremony on Wednesday along with her colleagues."
(Editor's note: See the earlier story on the People page about the delegate's wedding ceremony.)
