ON-Lion Letter
In mid-July, President George W. Bush nominated Clifford D. May, president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) in Washington, D.C., to serve on the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) for the remainder of a three-year term expiring in August 2009.

"In this very challenging period of history, it is vital that the United States communicate with audiences abroad clearly and creatively," May said.  "I will be honored and privileged if I can assist with this mission."

BBG is the independent federal agency responsible for all U.S. government and government-sponsored, non-military, international broadcasting, including the Voice of America, Alhurra TV, Radio Sawa, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, and Radio and TV Martí.

May will continue to serve as FDD’s president, a position he has held since its founding immediately following the 9/11 attacks on the U.S.  He has a long and distinguished career in international relations, journalism, communications, and politics.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports FDD.
