Chopra Volunteering for Obama

Anita Kumar

Aneesh P. Chopra, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's secretary of technology, has been putting in long hours in Washington helping President-elect Barack Obama's transition team get ready for his first day on the job Jan. 20.

Chopra is one of about 50 volunteers from across the nation serving on the transition's technology, innovation and government reform policy working group. Their primary responsibility is to support Obama's policy agenda by preparing briefing documents.

"We need the new administration to be ready on day one,'' Chopra said. "I'm honored to be amongst a number of talented volunteers to lend a helping hand."

Chopra, former managing director with the Advisory Board Company, a publicly-traded health care think tank serving nearly 2,500 hospitals and health systems, has considered running for office himself.

Will Chopra consider joining Obama's administration?

"I love my job,'' Chopra said.

I hope Mr. Chopra stresses the need for rural broadband access to residents. There are a number of communities in Southwestern Virginia that have benefited from business and school access (e.g., Lebanon, VA), but still do not have many residents connected at home. Let's bring fiber to the last mile.
