Obama Considers Latino Candidates for Secretary of Housing

El Diario/La Prensa, news report, Posted: Nov 25, 2008

NEW YORK Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr., is among several Latino candidates being considered for the position of U.S. secretary of housing and urban development, reports El Diario/La Prensa. Carrion, who has been Bronx borough president since 2001, met in Washington, D.C., last week with President-elect Barack Obamas transition team. The news, which was first published by The Washington Post, was confirmed yesterday by a source who did not want to be identified, El Diario/La Prensa reports. In addition to Carrion, 47, other Latinos who are being considered for the position include former Miami mayor Manny Diaz, and former Laredo, Texas mayor Saul N. Ramirez Jr., who was undersecretary of housing in the Clinton Administration. Observers say the new secretary of housing will not be known until after Thanksgiving.
