New Candidates for MPAA Chairman Post Emerge

Report cites Democrats Christopher Dodd and Bill Richardson, as well as Vickee Jordan Adams

NEW YORK - Retiring Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd, departing New Mexico governor Bill Richardson and Vickee Jordan Adams, a former executive at communications firm Hill & Knowlton and daughter of Vernon Jordan, who was a senior adviser to former President Bill Clinton, are among the candidates being considered for the post of chairman of the MPAA, the New York Times reported.

Studio bosses with the help of headhunters are looking at possible candidates after negotiations with former Senator Bob Kerrey fell apart over the summer.

Spokesmen for Dodd and Richardson did not return calls by the Times. And a spokesman for the MPAA declined comment.

The paper said that Bob Pisano, the association’s president who has been serving as interim chairman, is well liked, but may not be interested in the position longer term.
