In a week when unemployment numbers soared to near-record highs, President-elect Barack Obama’s weekly address focused on crafting solutions that will help hard-working American families and struggling homeowners during this economic crisis.
To put our country and our economy back on track, it will take every part of the Obama-Biden Administration working together to bring about the change Americans need.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development is crucial to that effort. That’s why President-elect Obama has selected Shaun Donovan, a widely respected Housing Commissioner from New York City, to lead this vital agency.
The Housing and Urban Development Secretary must bring a bold, innovative, and efficient approach to the position. Mr. Donovan will reinvigorate HUD with the fresh thinking necessary to protect thousands of American homes threatened by the current financial crisis.
