President Obama Names Joe Torsella To UN Job
As PhillyClout predicted way back on Sept. 3, President Obama has named Joe Torsella to a top post at the United Nations. Torsella, Gov. Rendell's appointee as chairman of the State Board of Education, was nominated yesterday by Obama to be the United States Representative for U.N. Management and Reform. Torsella, who twice served as president of the National Constitution Center and was deputy mayor for policy and planning when Rendell was mayor of Philadelphia, must have his appointment approved by the U.S. Senate.
