Brown Statement On The Selection Of Representative Marcia Fudge To Be Secretary Of Housing And Urban Development

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs released a statement after President-Elect Biden announced the nomination of Representative Marcia Fudge to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD):

“Representative Fudge is a talented lawyer, successful mayor, and effective legislator. She has shown time and time again, that there is nothing she can’t accomplish.  I am confident that as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development she will work to address this public health crisis and our affordable housing crisis,  and make our housing system more equitable. She is the right choice for this moment, will make Ohio proud, and take on systemic racism in our housing system so that the dream of homeownership is available to everyone, no matter who they are, where they live, or what kind of work they do.”
