Revolving Door: Another Biden Leader Leaves Office

  • President Joe Biden announced Monday he would be appointing Stephen Benjamin, the former mayor of Columbia, South Carolina, to serve as senior adviser and director of public engagement, replacing former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
  • Lance Bottoms will return home to Atlanta to spend time with her family, Biden said in a statement.
  • “Under Keisha’s leadership, the Office of Public Engagement has kept equity at the heart of our agenda and continues to serve as the connective tissue between our Administration and everyday Americans who may not have a voice to reach Washington otherwise. I have leaned on Keisha as a close advisor with exceptional instincts, and I am grateful to her for serving our nation with honor and integrity,” Biden said.
