This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Burson-Marsteller Senior VP-Media Relations James O'Hara III is slated to head FDA's Office of Public Affairs. Apparently, the appointment still needs to be approved. O'Hara had been at Burson-Marsteller since 1990. Prior to joining the public relations firm, he held several writing positions at The Tennessean. O'Hara will be replacing Gary Fendler, a Bush Administration political appointee who left the agency in January ("The Gray Sheet" Jan. 25, p. 1). O'Hara's wife, Marla Ramash, serves as press secretary for Vice President Gore.
