President-elect Joe Biden plans to nominate Ohio Congresswoman Marcia Fudge as the Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to multiple news reports. If confirmed, Fudge would be the first Black woman in decades to run the department and second only to Patricia Roberts Harris, who had the job under President Jimmy Carter.

As a Congress Woman from Ohio, Fudge represents parts of Cleveland and Akron, and her nomination has bee widely applauded as representative of Biden’s commitment to diversity. “President-elect Biden’s reported selection of Congresswoman Marcia Fudge of Ohio as his nominee for Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development emphasizes his commitment to expanding housing opportunity and combating racial disparities in our housing system,” said Marc Landis, managing partner of Phillips Nizer LLP and chair of the firm’s Real Estate Practice.
