Senate Confirms Marcia Fudge as HUD Secretary – Real Estate Investing Today
A former Congresswoman from NE Ohio, Marcia Fudge, was confirmed during the second week of March by the U.S. Senate to lead the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. According to The Hill, she will be the first woman to hold the position since 1979. After her confirmation, she resigned from her seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where she had represented parts of Cleveland and Akron (Ohio) since 2008.
“Fudge vowed during her confirmation process to turn HUD around at a critical moment for the U.S. with a special focus on narrowing the racial inequities in the housing market that have been deepened by COVID-19.”
