HUD Secretary Ben Carson comes to Dallas/Ft. Worth in next stop on listening tour

When Ben Carson officially became the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, he said that one of his first actions would be embarking on a “listening tour” of communities and HUD offices across the country.

The first stop on Carson’s tour was Detroit, his hometown.

The next stop on Carson’s tour will be the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, where he will visit various sites in both cities and meet with each city’s mayor.

Carson will be in the DFW area on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week.

Carson arrived in the DFW area on Wednesday, and tweeted that he met with the HUD regional office in Ft. Worth.

Editor’s note: Given that Carson’s listening tour takes him right through HousingWire’s backyard (HW World Headquarters is right in the middle of the DFW area), our reporters plan on attending both of Carson’s events in Dallas and will provide coverage.

Our team will work to talk to Carson at the events. So we ask you, our readers, if our reporters could ask Carson one question, what should it be? What do you want to know about HUD’s plans?

Let us know in the comments.
