Guest on The Infra Blog: Adolfo Carrión, Jr., Director, White House Office of Urban Affairs & Deputy Assistant to the President

Posted by Steve Anderson on Tuesday, April 20th, 2010
Adolfo Carrión is the first Director of the White House Office of Urban Affairs and Deputy Assistant to the President.  He was elected to the New York City Council in 1997, and served one term.  He was then elected Borough President of the Bronx, where he served for 7 years.  Under Carrión’s leadership, total investment in the borough increased from $361 million/year in 2002, to almost $1 billion/year in 2008.  Unemployment dropped by five percent, due in large part to Carrion’s aggressive pursuit of employment assurances for members of the Bronx community as he implemented the largest infrastructure, residential and commercial redevelopment since the 1920′s. Adolfo Carrión: Support for InfrastructureUSA.org’s mission “Anything that will stir up the conversation among the citizenry about the future of our country, both in its physical manifestation and in its social and economic manifestation, is a good thing, and I think what InfrastructureUSA.org is doing is laudable and should be applauded. We need more of this kind of civic engagement.” Population growth and the need for significant infra investment Infra education Download transcript (PDF): Adolfo Carrión, Jr. on The Infra Blog BP Carrion.JPG
