Marcia Fudge was confirmed as Secretary for the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) agency.  The vote was finalized on March 10th 66-34.    Fudge has a long career in public service.  Recently she was a member of the House of Representative from Ohio.  Her appointment is seen as an overall strategy of the Biden administration to bring civility back to how government serves the people. 

She replaces Dr. Ben Carson who was part of DJTGS (Donald J. Trump Grifter Society).  They were known to use government resources to benefit themselves and supporters of Trump.  Further, those like Carson were appointed to agencies which was far beyond their professional expertise. Many felt Carson was better suited to be Surgeon General or some role related to medicine. HUD was a major prize since real estate is such a valuable asset but a perfect tool for grifters within the Trump orbit to have access to resources they could only dream about.  Over the past four years under Carson’s leadership to agency was known to do everything but attempt to resolve public housing issues.

Fudge’s confirmation was expected as during her career she is known as a no-nonsense politician.
