Vasquez's bid before Congress

Vasquez's bid before Congress

October 4, 2001

Gaddi Vasquez's nomination to head the Peace Corps was submitted to Congress on Wednesday by the White House. It's uncertain whether the former Orange County supervisor will get a confirmation hearing this year.

Vasquez, 46, is a public- affairs executive for Southern California Edison. A group of former Peace Corps volunteers is trying to derail his appointment, saying he has no international experience and that his involvement with the Orange County bankruptcy casts doubt on his management skills.

Vasquez could not be reached for comment.
