Cleveland City Council Members Express Gratitude for Outgoing Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia L. Fudge

Mar 11, 2024

Cleveland (March 11, 2024) - Council extends heartfelt congratulations and sincere gratitude to outgoing Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. Thank you, Secretary Fudge, for your commitment to improving housing opportunities and uplifting communities. Her work as HUD Secretary and 11th District Congresswoman has made a real impact in Cleveland, Northeast Ohio, and beyond. Her leadership has been truly remarkable. 

Many Council members are personal friends of Secretary Fudge, who started her political career as the first woman and first Black person elected mayor of Warrensville Heights. 

“Marcia Fudge has been a personal friend and mentor to me and several elected officials in Cleveland,” Council President Blaine A. Griffin said. “Her tenure as HUD Secretary has impacted the nation and Cleveland. She helped us receive funding to completely transform the Woodhill Estates, a public housing complex that was falling into disrepair. 

“She will be missed in DC. But I’m glad she’s coming home, and I look forward to her wisdom, guidance, and mentorship moving forward. Thank you, Madame Secretary.”
