President-Elect Joe Biden is making a few more additions to his incoming administration before Christmas. With his latest move, the President-Elect appointed Joelle Gamble as the special assistant to the President for economic policy.
Prior to working with the Biden-Harris administration, Gamble graduated from both UCLA and Princeton University. She has worked as a board member of the Roosevelt Institute and a member of the social change organization, Omidyar Network. More recently, she has offered her expertise to the Biden-Harris transition team’s domestic economic policy team.
In a recent statement, Biden said that Gamble, along with the other members of the council, was appointed because of their years of knowledge and expertise.
“Working families are struggling through the deepest, most inequitable, economic and jobs crisis in modern history. This is no time to build back the way things were before — this is the moment to build a new American economy that works for all,” Biden said.
“Today’s appointees have broad viewpoints on how to build a stronger and more inclusive middle class. With their robust experience and qualifications, they will provide the needed voices to guide my administration in overcoming our nation’s unprecedented economic challenges.”
In her role, Gamble will work with the President-Elect as he hopes to roll out some of his bigger economic initiatives. In recent months, he's expressed a desire to issue a third stimulus package, eliminate student loan debt and lessen the racial wealth gap.
