Donovan Confirmed as HUD Secretary

shaundonovan 1 Donovan Confirmed as HUD SecretaryShaun Donovan, the city’s housing commissioner since 2004, has been confirmed as President Obama’s Housing and Urban Development secretary.

The confirmation in the U.S. Senate happened late last night, ending his stint at the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

In a statement, Mayor Bloomberg said, “The country is fortunate to have someone of Shaun’s intelligence, passion and determination to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development.”

The Bloomberg administration has not yet named a replacement for Mr. Donovan, though earlier this week, two people familiar with the hiring search said Rafael Cestero, a former deputy commissioner at HPD, was the leading candidate.
