Where is Marcia Fudge?

We have an eviction crisis, homelessness, soaring housing prices, and an affordable housing crunch, but I haven't seen her on television lately at all.

Where is she? Is she asleep, in a coma, golfing? Is she still the Secretary of HUD?

first thought was correct, but I needed to make sure. Marcus sent me down a quick alley. So I then verified who the hell Fudge is, and then it came back whence it came. Cabinet member at work.

Office being a tool of political punishment on those struggling financially . . . It's like they forgot that decent Americans who want to do their job effectively don't have time to twitter, go on a bunch of tv shows, radio shows, etc. etc.


Look at what she has oversight of:
https://www.hud.gov/directory/director

That's a lot of people to manage and ensure they are doing their job.

Maybe she's just not 'out there' because she's doing her job and making sure they do theirs?

I don't know - I'm just a simple import export girl - but it just seems like I've gotten so used to Fed Gov being filled with imbeciles who go for sound bites to impress their boss as opposed to doing the job they were hired to do. Fiddle dee.

... some people are not happy unless they are un-happy. (Or, unless they can make others as unhappy as they are.)

Happy October, Sweetie!

Yes... JAG rocks!

These problems are happening all over the country, not just in Chicago.

We need her to DO something, not just show up somewhere for a photo op.

HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge hits Chicago on Tuesday to promote President Biden housing agenda

Fudge will visit affordable housing apartments serving Chicago’s Black and Latino communities on the Far South Side and Pilsen.

By Lynn Sweet Oct 4, 2021, 6:00am CDT


Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge visits Chicago on Tuesday to promote President Joe Biden’s “human infrastructure” agenda with stops highlighting HUD-assisted affordable housing apartments in the city’s Black and Latino communities.

This is the first time Fudge, a former Ohio Democratic House member, stops in Chicago as a member of Biden’s Cabinet. She is on the road, as are other Cabinet members, to build up public support for the Biden package, whose fate in unknown mainly because of two reluctant Democratic senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

Fudge will highlight Biden proposals connected to affordable housing in the sweeping measure. According to HUD, Fudge’s Chicago swing will “amplify the Biden-Harris Administration’s Build Back Better agenda and its investments in housing construction and rehabilitation, economic development, and community revitalization.”


Rumor is she may be wearing a policy statement on the back of her dress, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

What is she DOING about these problems besides talking about them?

We can't SEE her doing anything so she needs to tell us exactly what she's doing or else we have every right to assume she's doing NOTHING.
