San Francisco Federal Reserve President John Williams on Friday did not comment on reports Thursday that he is under consideration by the White House to be the Fed Board`s No. 2, succeeding Stanley Fischer who resigned late last year.
"I`m not going to comment on that at all," he told reporters after an event at the Fed`s headquarters. "This is a decision the president of the United States makes. I am not going to speculate on what will happen there." Asked if he had met the president, he said, "I`ll just leave it at that."
