Representative Waters Comments on Resignation of HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson

July 27, 2009
Press Release

Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-35), Chairwoman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Community Opportunity, today released the following statement regarding the resignation of HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson:

"I am very sorry Secretary Jackson defaulted on a great opportunity to serve this country, particularly at a time when HUD should be playing an important role in solving the subprime crisis, restoring housing to the Gulf Coast and taking advantage of opportunities afforded by Congress to revitalize the Hope VI and FHA programs. I am hopeful that the Bush Administration will quickly appoint someone to replace him who will have full authority to provide the leadership that is so desperately needed at HUD."
