The Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs will meet in open session to conduct a hearing on the following nominations: Mr. Kevin Allen Hassett, of Massachusetts, to be Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers; and The Honorable Pamela Hughes Patenaude, of New Hampshire, to be Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Patenaude is currently President of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for America’s Families, to serve as HUD’s Deputy Secretary.  Patenaude previously served as the Director of the Bipartisan Policy Centers Housing Commission. Patenaude is no stranger to HUD, having served as the White House Liaison under President Ronald Reagan and, more recently, as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Urban Development during the George W. Bush presidency.

NH&RA congratulates Patenaude on her nomination and looks forward to working with her once she is confirmed.
