If you want Peter Rost as the next FDA Commissioner, this is what you can do.
The selection of a new FDA Commissioner takes a lot of consideration. It is likely that various Members of Congress who may have an interest in the outcome suggest candidates that they think may be suitable.
So key is to be one of the names they propose.
And that's where you can make a difference.
There is a web site that makes it very easy to write to the staff of any Congressman or Senator and it is called Outsource Congress.
Simply go there, leave "State" blank and select "House and Senate," then put in the name of the individual you want to contact to say that Peter Rost should be the next FDA Commissioner.
Trust me, it works, if enough people write in, and the system is automatic so your email will open by itself when you click on "Staff." In the "to" line you can for instance put in your own email address, that way you get all the staff bcc:d on your communication.
And, you can select Barack Obama, as well as new White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Senator Byron Dorgan, Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative James Langevin, Representative Marion Berry, Representative Rosa DeLauro, Representative Jo Ann Emerson and Representative Dan Burton.
All of them as well as Senators and Representatives from your own state may be willing to listen . . .
So what are you waiting for?
Go to Outsource Congress and make your voice heard!
