Gov Newsom taps Tom Steyer to lead CA Economic recovery (Tim Cook, Bob Iger also on task force)

Now speaking on MSNBC.

Ann O’Leary to co-chair (Newsom’s CoS).

Great choice, IMHO.

“Billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer, who launched an expensive unsuccessful presidential campaign, will co-chair a task force in California that will focus on getting the economy up and running again.

“The panel, announced on Friday by Gov. Gavin Newsom, will be composed of more than 70 members including former Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen, Disney Executive Chairman Bob Iger and Apple CEO Tim Cook.

“Steyer’s co-chair will be Newsom’s chief of staff Ann O’Leary, a former senior advisor to Hilary Clinton.

“The task force’s goal is to help Californian’s recover as fast as possible from the economic calamity resulting from the coronavirus.

“The economic task force will meet twice a month through 2020.“

3. No doubt Biden has already asked Jared to stay on in Joe's administration.

Young geniuses don’t grow on trees.

7. Gov. Gavin Newsome assembled a blue ribbon team of economic advisers going forward...

and you can bet the farm he didn't have to twist one arm to get them on board.

Leadership, Baby!
