Here’s something new

November 10, 2008

Wow, our newly elected President does not have a problem with creating new offices.  There is talk that there will be an Office of Urban Policy to deal with federal oversight in helping American cities.

…plans are underway to establish a White House Office of Urban Policy in order to better coordinate federal efforts to help America’s cities, according to Obama transition co-chair Valerie Jarrett.

“He’s going to have a White House chief of urban policy,” Jarrett told the Trotter Group, an organization of black columnists.

She declined to divulge any names of potential choices for the post. “I’m sure there are plenty of candidates. It’s a great job,” Jarrett said.

Despite the many national problems confronting the new administration, she continued, Obama remains committed to earlier pledges to establish such an office. “Because he began as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago, he understands at the local level is really where you can impact change and that local government can play a vital role as we try to jump start our economy,” she said. “So having somebody in the White House, because there are so many different agencies that really can impact urban America and to have one person whose job it is to really pull all of that together, is really a critical position. And there are plenty of terrific candidates for that spot.”

Wow.  Who knew that President Obama said what he meant and meant what he said.

Enough said.
