Top Biden Official Suddenly Quits

( – Signaling the Biden administration’s inability to keep its top officials in the Oval Office, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Marcia Fudge will resign on March 22.

Biden expressed his thoughts in a statement about the housing system inherited upon taking office and emphasized the need to reconstruct fair housing and civil rights protections dismantled by the previous administration.

During her three-year tenure, Fudge actively advocated for enhancing generational wealth through homeownership, cost reduction and fairness for American renters.

While in office, Fudge faced challenges such as the controversial national eviction moratorium, which the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately rejected in the summer of 2021.

Additionally, she addressed the escalating rates of homelessness in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with USA Today about her retirement, Fudge expressed that she did nearly everything possible in preparation for the “crazy, silly season of an election.”

She emphasized the bipartisan nature of the affordable housing issue and categorized it as an American concern that transcends political affiliations.

The White House revealed that Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Adrianne Todman would assume Fudge’s role in an acting capacity on March 22. However, a permanent successor has not been announced yet.

Whether Biden will make this announcement before the November election remains unclear. Before choosing Fudge the Biden transition team had reportedly considered figures like Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass for the position.
