A Bit More on Shaun Donovan

CREDIT:

I was a little bit wrong-footed by the Shaun Donovan pick since he’s not really as high-profile as a lot of the Obama administration’s other incoming cabinet secretaries (no Nobel Prize, etc.) but I should say that I’ve heard from a few people involved in affordable housing work and they’re very excited about this guy. They feel that he’s a real expert in the field, and someone who’s really committed to HUD’s issues, in a way that the department has rarely seen.
