Former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is heading to Washington D.C.

She’s joining the Biden Administration as the Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.  Bottoms says she plans to do “more listening than anything” in her new position.

She’ll be responsible for coordinating two-way dialogue about challenges and policies between the White House and communities around the country.

Bottoms had been on a short list of candidates being considered for Biden’s running mate in 2020.
