RPCV Al Kamen (Dominican Republic 1965-67) of the Washington Post has been tracking the search for a new Peace Corps Director. Here’s what he had to say today in his In The Loop column.
“There’s word the administration is looking to name a new Peace Corps director soon. Early chat had been that James Arena-DeRosa, formerly the agency’s New England regional director, was a leading contender for the job, but he seems to have faded. The front-runners now, we hear, are Frank Fountain, a senior executive at the Chrysler Group, and Aaron Williams, now a top executive with the Research Training Institute. Fountain was a volunteer in India, Williams in the Dominican Republic.”
