Senator Scott Supports Dr. Ben Carson for HUD Secretary

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement after the conclusion of Dr. Ben Carson’s confirmation hearing in Senate Banking Committee:

“As Chairman of the subcommittee on Housing, Transportation, and Community Development, I have seen firsthand how the shortfalls of the current HUD leadership have led to the appalling conditions that are an unfortunate reality for so many of our families who rely on our nation’s federally funded public housing properties. We need someone to take over who will help bring a fresh perspective to a government agency in desperate need of innovative change, and that is why I support Dr. Ben Carson’s nomination.”
