Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom has declined an offer to serve in President-elect Joe Biden's cabinet, her office said in a statement Saturday.
"Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was honored to have been offered a role in the Cabinet, which she respectfully declined," Rashad Taylor, Bottoms' senior adviser stated.
The spokesperson declined to state what the position was but refuted rumors that Lance Bottoms had been offered an ambassadorship.
"The Mayor's focus remains on the people of Atlanta and the great state of Georgia," he said. "Out of respect for the process, and the other candidates under consideration, no additional comment will be forthcoming on this matter at this time."
