We’re all pretty much “livin’ on a prayer” these days, so I guess this is a good fit:

Actor. Poet. Musician. Performer. Rocker Jon Bon Jovi can now add one more title to his impressive resume: White House appointee.

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order establishing the White House Council for Community Solutions, and Bon Jovi appears as one of the individuals appointed to the group.

“The Council 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,” states the release.

The “community needs” these days are jobs, so the best thing Bon Jovi could do would be to add several million good-paying percussionist positions to his band.

Here’s the introduction of the newly formed council on the White House website.

WASHINGTON – Today, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the White House Council for Community Solutions. The Council 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.

With any luck, Bon Jovi’s first recommendation as Community Solutions Czar will be to get the federal government’s nose out of community issues, but I’m not counting on that.
