Another one of our candidates advanced by both Black Women for Obama and the National Congress of Black Women throughout Presidential Appointments Commission, Dr. Regina Benjamin, is now confirmed! Thanks to all who worked with us to make this happen. We are still working on other appointments and confirmations.
Biz Scott (Chair of NCBW's Presidential Appointments Commission) and Stephanie Myers (Co-Chair of Black Women for Obama for Change) are to be highly commended for the work they continue to do on the subject of appointments and confirmations. This is a very time consuming process, but slowly, we are making progress. Beginning with our seminars last November for potential appointees, we have spent hours writing letters, calling, meeting with White House Personnel and others! When someone's candidacy succeeds, we are truly happy and proud that we took the time necessary to make it happen.
