SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A White House official says President Barack Obama will name Intel Corp. CEO Paul Otellini to the president's advisory council on jobs and competitiveness. Otellini has criticized Obama's economic policies.
Obama was visiting Intel's semiconductor manufacturing facility in Hillsboro, Ore., on Friday. He is on the West Coast promoting his agenda to make the U.S. more competitive globally.
As recently as September, Otellini said administration policies had created too much uncertainty for businesses and had failed to boost job growth or consumer confidence.
Obama created the council last month and named Jeff Immelt, GE's chief executive, as chairman. The panel is supposed to be finding new ways to promote economic growth and bring jobs to the U.S.
The White House official requested anonymity to speak before the official announcement.
