President Joe Biden

WASHINGTON – Immediately after his Wednesday, January 20, 2021 inauguration ceremony, President Joe Biden went to work and announced the acting agency leadership across the administration to assist in the next phase of the transition of government. These individuals, nearly all of whom are career civil servants, will temporarily lead federal agencies while Cabinet nominees continue moving through the confirmation process.

These public servants have significant experience in the agencies they will now temporarily lead. They will play an important role as the Biden administration prepares to coordinate a whole-of-government approach to tackle the challenges facing the nation, restore trust in our government, and ensure the federal government — and its many agencies — serves the American people.

President Joe Biden said, “These public servants, like so many across the federal government, are dedicated to serving the American people, not a political party or agenda. Their experience in government and commitment to service will allow this administration to take the reins as we prepare to get the pandemic under control and our economy moving once again. I am thankful for their willingness to step-up to lead during these difficult times and help us make sure the government continues to operate and serve the American people. Together, we are restoring trust in the federal government and building our nation back better.”

Vice President Kamala Harris said, “Protecting our nation’s interests abroad, rebuilding our economy, and confronting the coronavirus pandemic requires a team of dedicated experts. The acting leaders announced today are more than capable of helping with this incredible task. Many of them have dedicated their careers to public service, and I, on behalf of a grateful nation, am thankful for their willingness to temporarily serve in these critical first days of the administration.”

The following individuals will serve in acting capacities across the Biden-Harris administration until permanent leadership can be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

      Again…don’t you wish that laptop was Donald Jr’s instead of Hunter’s? That mess isn’t going away, and keep the name Bobulinski in your dreams. Joe has some stammering in his future that you ain’t gonna believe.

      Not a Republican? What a liar. I’ve seen your posts. Btw, it’s only Repugnicants who ring the debt up like crazy then become “money conscious” when Dems are in charge. Nearly 8Trillion thanks to them the past 4 years.

    Illegitimate Biden kills 11,000 jobs and call for unity. Destroying the economy is the Demorats first order of business. As expected.

      tRump killed a helluva lot more jobs along with 400,000+ people with his “It’s a hoax!” refusal of dealing with COVID. Btw, Biden hasn’t killed one job yet.

        “tRump killed a helluva lot more jobs along with 400,000+ people with his “It’s a hoax!” refusal of dealing with COVID.”

        If you Communists, I mean tolerant Democrats, were fact checked was the same degree of asinine malice conservatives are, you would be decimated off this one sentence.

        First Trump didn’t kill the jobs, Communist, I mean Democrat governors did with their over the top lock downs. The big job losses were in Communist, I mean tolerant Democrat run states. You know, like California, Michigan, Nevada, ETC.

        Trump didn’t kill anyone. When CDC said masks MIGHT help back in April, Trump said they might, he agreed. He left the decision to mandate them to the GOVERNORS, like he, as president is supposed to. Every time he tried to do anything, like close our borders to air traffic from China, the Communists, I mean tolerant Democrats would get their media lapdogs fired up. Calling him a xenophobe and/or a racist.

    It’s possible that Joe Biden is the highest-rising example of vote-pandering phony that this world has ever seen.

    He’s POTUS now, so c’mon man, he has to be no.1.
