[Peace Corps news] PC director-designate has hearing before Senate committee
President Bush has nominated Ron Tschetter, an RPCV who served in India, to succeed the departed Gaddi Vasquez as Peace Corps director. Peace Corps Online, an independent website, has an account of Tschetter's hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. PCO reports that Tschetter intends to make recruitment of baby boomers a priority. While the nomination of Vasquez 5 years ago sparked huge opposition from the RPCV community who thought him unqualified, PCO noted that these hearings were far more subdued and endorsed his nomination.
