BUSH NOMINATES EDMUND MOY AS U.S. MINT DIRECTOR

Last Friday, President George W. Bush nominated Waukesha, WI
native Edmund C. Moy for a five-year term as director of the
United States Mint.

"He currently serves as Special Assistant to the President for
Presidential Personnel at the White House. Prior to this, he
served as Senior Advisor at Welsh, Carson, Anderson and Stowe.
Earlier in his career, he served as the Director of the Office
of Managed Care for the Federal Health Care Financing Administration
at the Department of Health and Human Services. Mr. Moy received
his bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin."

[So here we go again - another politically-connected nominee.
That's how it's been done for centuries, but I still have to ask,
just what else qualifies Mr. Moy for leadership of such a sprawling
manufacturing and retail sales organization?   It's been nearly a
year since Bush nominated the prior candidate, a politically-connected
Oklahoman with no manufacturing or management experience.  Her
nomination was quietly withdrawn a month later, before the Senate
could grill her on her qualifications.  How will this nomination
play out?  Mr. Moy at least seems to have some management experience.
Do any of our subscribers know of him?  Here are links to our earlier
E-Sylum articles on the prior nominee:
