In its announcement Tuesday, the White House said the new panel will “provide advice to the President on the best ways to mobilize citizens, nonprofits, businesses and government to work more effectively together to solve specific community needs.”
Bon Jovi, a long-time supporter of the Democratic Party, performed at President Obama’s inauguration. The Grammy winner heads the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a group devoted to ending homelessness.
Other appointees include eBay CEO John Donahoe; Paula Boggs, an executive vice president of Starbucks; and Patti Stonesifer, chair of the Board of Regents for the Smithsonian Institution.
