Ally Ron Sims Nominated as Deputy Secretary of H.U.D.
King County (WA) Executive Ron Sims has accepted the nomination to become deputy
director secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Sims has done a great job as county executive, and will bring good stuff to HUD. But why should we Blenders care, you ask? Sims is a true civil rights leader, and has been a steadfast ally to the LGBT community. His pro-equality sensibility infuses everything he does, so I know that he isn’t just taking the urban planning part of himself to “the other Washington”. We’ll have a true ally at HUD.
Best of luck on your confirmation, Exec. Sims!
