Biden names Scott to governors’ council

Then-VP Joe Biden greets Tom Evslin as Gov. Jim Douglas and aide Heidi Tringe look on

President Biden has appointed Governor Phil Scott to the President’s Council of Governors for a two-year term, as the White House announced today

The bipartisan Council was established by Section 1822 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 and implemented by Presidential Executive Order 13528 in 2010. It includes up to 10 governors who work with federal officials to address issues relating to national security, homeland defense, disaster preparedness, response and recovery, and the National Guard.

Governor Scott today issued the following statement in response to the appointment:

“President Biden has frequently noted that good government requires listening to and learning from all perspectives, considering all ideas, seeking consensus wherever possible and compromising when necessary to move America forward. Nowhere is this approach more important than when it comes to matters of national security or disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

“As a public servant, I have always prioritized good government over party politics, and this is the perspective I will bring to this appointment. It is truly an honor to serve on the Council.

“I want to thank President Biden for appointing me, and I look forward to working with his Administration and the other governors to demonstrate that bipartisan leadership can work and help bring our deeply polarized country together to unite around our shared values and goals.”

In addition to Governor Scott, the President’s Council of Governors includes:  

  • Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Co-Chair
  • Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Co-Chair
  • Delaware Governor John Carney
  • Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards
  • Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer
  • Oregon Governor Kate Brown
  • Utah Governor Spencer Cox
  • Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon

The nine newly appointed governors will join Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, whose term expires in 2022, on the Council.

  1. Scott will be in elite company. A reward perhaps, to the politicians that complied with Biden and Fauci?

  2. Phil is being rewarded for supporting the illegitimate regime. Along with this prestigious position is a free painting by Hunter Biden! Don’t forget Phil – 10% for the Big Guy!

  3. Well isn’t that special….A brain dead “President” appointing a sock puppet to his advisory council of liberal sock puppets…One big circle jerk….And all it cost Scott, was thumbing his nose at our 2nd Amendment.

  4. Not a surprise. He’s a good little puppet for the Marxist Regime. This is just a “congratulations” for his job well done in adhering to the evil agenda they set for Vermont. However, the tide has already turned and the Truth cannot be stopped no matter how hard they try. God always wins!

  5. A Governor’s first responsibility is to protect individual States rights under the U.S. Constitution from being usurped by the Federal Government, not to work as an subversive agent of the Federal Government. No matter how they try to disguise it!
