MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission commissioner Ann Marie Buerkle extended an olive branch to fashion executives keeping a wary eye on potential regulatory changes.
“I’m sensitive to what businesses are up against,” said the former congresswoman, who spoke at a seminar here last week and grew up working in her parents’ grocery store before going on to become a nurse and then U.S. congresswoman. Before the commission makes changes, Buerkle said, she would like to know “what’s broken, what needs to be fixed and why are we doing this.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
