Trump to announce Richard Clarida as Fed vice chair today – report

WSJ report

Clairda has long been rumored as the choice and now it’s almost official, according to a WSJ report.

However, he will also name Michelle Bowman as a governor. Bowman is a banking regulator in Kansas City.

Both nominations would be subject to Congressional approval.

Bowman would fill a spot on the seven-member Fed board reserved for a community
banker or regulator of community banks. Congress designated the
community banker seat in 2014.

Bowman’s family owns Farmers & Drovers Bank in Council Grove, Kansas, according to the WSJ and she has been a vice-president since 2010.
