Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New Housing & Urban Development Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Banking Committee, voted to confirm Dr. Ben Carson as Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development:

“Our nation’s cities and rural communities have very diverse housing needs and development requirements. When I met with Dr. Carson, we discussed the wide range of improvements for large cities like Atlanta and smaller cities like my hometown, Warner Robins. Dr. Carson is a very knowledgeable man with a sincere heart for humanity and we are fortunate to have him serve in this new capacity. I look forward to working with Dr. Carson to roll back government regulations impeding economic growth so we can bring positive change to America’s underserved communities.”
