Cal Dooley, a former farmer who went on to become a congressman representing an agricultural central California district, is set to become the new head of the American Chemistry Council in the fall. "What you're finding with almost every association that is selecting a new leader is that they're looking for a candidate that has credibility with Republicans and Democrats, and they're looking for those individuals that are not perceived as being overly partisan and have the credibility and integrity with both sides of the aisle," Dooley said. "I think what is even more important than your partisan affiliation is your intellectual and personal integrity."
