Kamala Harris will not yet move to the official residence of the Vice Presidency at the Naval Observatory

The mansion, located a few miles from the White House, needs repairs

The vice president of the United States, Kamala Harris, will not yet move to the residence that is granted to the person who occupies the position, a mansion located in the Naval Observatory in Washington and just four kilometers from the White House.

Harris, who was just sworn in, and her husband, attorney Douglas Emhoff, will not move yet as the house needs some repairs, an aide to the vice president has announced, CBS reports.

The residence is in need of fixes such as chimney liner replacement and other maintenance issues, repairs that can be done “more easily” if the house is not occupied, now that former Vice President Mike Pence and his family have left the place. and before the Harris family settles in.

The mansion, which was built in 1893, became the official residence of the US vice president in 1974 after having previously been the home of the former chief of naval operations. Thus, George H.W. Bush, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney or Joe Biden himself.

Harris, 56, has risen a new echelon in her political career by becoming vice president after serving as a senator. In her career, she has also been California’s first black woman attorney general and the second black United States senator.

Daughter of migrants, her figure is opposed to that of Biden, more in line with the traditional ‘establishment’ of Washington, although he has trusted her by giving her a prominent role in which she aspires to be the Government with the most women in the history of the country.
