Bush AIDS Official Due: Times

09/03/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Gay Republican Scott Evertz, an AIDS activist from Wisconsin, is soon expected be named to head President Bush's newly reorganized White House AIDS office, reports The New York Times. His appointment will mark an expansion of that office, whose aim it is to combat the disease and to establish related policies, both in the U.S. and abroad. Evertz's anticipated appointment would be coming at a time when the President's commitment to AIDS is being questioned. Last February, Bush's chief of staff, Andrew Card, said that key White House offices on AIDS and race relations would be abolished.
