Bush Taps Former Rjc Chair for U.N. Post

President Bush nominated a former chairwoman of the Republican Jewish Coalition to a United Nations post.

Bush picked Cheryl Halpern to be an alternate U.N. representative. Alternate representatives present U.S. views in a number of smaller forums, including at committee meetings and at ancillary U.N. bodies.

The nomination was sent Monday to the U.S. Senate.

Halpern, who formerly chaired the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, would serve in the position through September, when the U.N. General Assembly’s 63rd session ends.

Bush made Halpern a delegate to the 2003 Organization for Security and Cooperation Conference on Anti-Semitism.
