Another top Biden adviser abruptly leaving White House

 July 16, 2023

Louisa Terrell, a senior adviser to President Joe Biden, will leave the White House after this month, according to a statement from the Biden administration on Friday.

Terrell has served under Biden since his term began as president in 2021, marking one of the president's top advisers to leave the White House.

The statement

"For years — as a Senator, as Vice President, as President, and every moment in between — I have relied on Louisa for her wise counsel and her skill. I have relied upon her to reflect my values. And I have relied upon her to deliver for the American people. Every step of the way, that’s exactly what she has done," the president wrote in a statement Friday.

"Louisa’s steady hand and perseverance have consistently helped get key priorities over the finish line. Her work to secure the confirmation of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, along with a historic number of diverse judges and appointees across the United States Government, has significantly furthered our work to build an Administration and judicial benches at every level that look more like America," he added.

Pelosi adds her thanks

"Louisa Terrell has been a great asset to our Country — having the confidence of the President, the respect of the Congress and the knowledge of policy and how to get it passed," former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tweeted.

"I join in saluting Louisa’s commitment to public service and commend her role in our historic agenda last Congress," she continued.

Terrell's career

"She previously worked in the Obama administration, assisting then-President Barack Obama with legislative affairs as well," NPR noted. "Terrell also has a background in the U.S. Senate, working for then-Sen. Biden and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J."

Terrell previously also held top policy roles at Big Tech companies Yahoo and Facebook.

"Outside of government, Terrell has had senior policy roles at Yahoo! and Facebook. She last served as the deputy general counsel and head of public affairs for McKinsey and Company," it added.

Terrell's future plans were not announced, with no clear announcements concerning the next steps in her career.

The policy adviser's departure comes as Biden seeks help ramping up his 2024 campaign in what could be an epic rematch against former President Donald Trump.
