“On Monday, Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), joined Alex Acosta, Secretary of the Department of Labor , Senator Richard Burr (NC), Senator Thom Tillis (NC), and Congressman David Rouzer (NC-7) in North Carolina to visit areas impacted by Hurricane Florence,” said HUD in a statement to the Daily Business News on MHProNews.
“After touring damaged areas, Secretary Carson, Secretary Acosta, Governor Roy Cooper, Congressman David Price (NC-4) and Congressman G.K. Butterfield (NC-1) received a briefing on the recovery efforts at FEMA’s Joint Field Office,” the federal spokesperson stated.
“We work for the people, the people don’t work for us,” Secretary Carson explained. “The best way to actually work for the people is to see what the people are doing, to hear from the people themselves.”
Carson subsequently was interviewed by One America Network News (OANN). Emerald Robinson spoke with HUD Secretary Ben Carson to discuss the department’s work with FEMA, federal loans, and other coordination efforts.
Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump, the first lady Melania, and GOP Senate hopeful Governor Rick Scott visited Mexico Beach, Florida to tour the devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael.
HUD previously sent a statement to MHProNews that includes potential opportunities for manufactured and modular housing professionals in the wake of Michael, and/or other disasters, such as Florence.
