Another Top Biden Ally QUITS

Marcia Fudge, who served as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, tendered her resignation from the role on Monday.

“It’s time to go home. I do believe strongly that I have done just about everything I could do at HUD for this administration as we go into this crazy, silly season of an election,” Fudge announced, stating that her last day is March 22.

“From her time as a mayor, to her years as a fierce advocate in the U.S. House of Representatives, Marcia’s vision, passion, and focus on increasing economic opportunity have been assets to our country. I’m grateful for all of her contributions toward a housing system that works for all Americans, and I wish her well in her next chapter,” President Joe Biden said in a statement on Monday.

Biden described Fudge as a “strong voice for expanding efforts to build generational wealth through homeownership, lowering costs, and promoting fairness for America’s renters.”

“Under Marcia’s transformational leadership, we have worked hard to lower housing costs and increase supply. We’ve proposed the largest investment in affordable housing in U.S. history,” Biden added.

“We’ve taken steps to aggressively combat racial discrimination in housing by ensuring home appraisals are more fair and by strengthening programs to redress the negative impacts of redlining. Thanks to Secretary Fudge, we’ve helped first-time homebuyers, and we are working to cut the cost of renting. And there are more housing units under construction right now than at any time in the last 50 years,” Biden continued.
