Clinton Makes PRC Nominations

Share this content:
President Clinton announced his nomination last week to reappoint Edward Gleiman as chairman and commissioner of the Postal Rate Commission. He also nominated Dana B. Covington as PRC commissioner.


The PRC recommends postal rates and mail classifications for adoption by the USPS' board of governors. It may proclaim rules and regulations, establish procedures and take other action it deems necessary to carry out their functions and obligations.


The Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs completed a confirmation hearing on the appointments. The nominations now must be approved by the full Senate.


Gleiman, a well-liked fixture in the postal and direct marketing world, has served as PRC chairman since 1994. Covington is director of communications, planning and policy at the U.S. Senate Office of the Sergeant-at-Arms. There are five PRC commissioners, who are named to six-year terms by the president. Covington will take the seat of George W. Haley, a commissioner whose term ends Oct. 14.


In addition, Clinton nominated John F. Walsh to serve as a member of the board of governors. Walsh served as president of the Ninth Square Association of New Haven, CT, which coordinated the efforts of a redevelopment project, from 1992 until his retirement this year. At the same time, he served as chairman of the New Haven Parking Authority.
