Barrales For Open FCC Seat

According to an article I just came across, Bush is considering Ruben Barrales to dill one of the empty commissioner seats. Barrales serves as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs and is Bush's liaison to state governments and other localized officials. Before joining the White House in 2001, he was CEO of Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network - an organization promoting the regions' businesses.

Barrales looks to be the President's alternate choice if Rebecca Klein turns down the FCC job. Klein may choose to become chair of the Federal Energy Regulation Commission instead. Meanwhile, the other FCC seat is most likely guaranteed to Christine Kurth, telecom aide to Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens.
