The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s Fed pick Judy Shelton has skipped almost half of EBRD board meetings

WASHINGTON — One of President Donald Trump’s latest picks for the Federal Reserve, economic commentator Judy Shelton, has amassed a spotty attendance record on the board of the European development bank where she serves as U.S. envoy.

Shelton missed 11 of 26 board meetings, or 42%, of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, or EBRD, in her first year as the U.S. representative, according to minutes of the meetings. That is a greater share than her predecessor and all but two of the bank’s 23 current directors.

Her U.S. predecessor at the bank, Obama administration appointee Scott Allen, missed four of the board’s 27 meetings, or 15%, during his tenure, which lasted a bit longer than a year.
