Obama Should Nominate Influential Development, Health Leader To Head USAID

The Hill: Think big on USAID administrator
Richard Lugar, former Republican Senator from Indiana

“…From the recent Ebola outbreaks, to the instability caused by chronic hunger, to terrorist recruitment fueled by crushing poverty, the United States has a deep interest in being a leader on development issues. The President should find an [USAID] Administrator who will command immediate respect in Congress and overseas and who is dedicated to two years of strengthening the momentum created by [outgoing USAID Administrator Rajiv] Shah” (12/29).
