Following is an excerpt of the September 17 news release from R. Hunter Kurtz, Assistant Secretary, HUD-PIH.
It is with great excitement and sadness that I announce that Deputy Assistant Secretary DJ LaVoy has been asked to serve as the Deputy Under Secretary of Rural Development at the Department of Agriculture. PIH has been fortunate enough to have had DJ’s talent and commitment for over 20 years, leading innovative reforms that have and will improve service for our partners, PHAs, and residents for decades to come.
I am also pleased to welcome David Vargas as Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC). He will be joining us from the General Services Administration (GSA). Before his tenure at GSA and OPM, he was the Deputy Assistant Secretary of REAC. Please join me in welcoming David back home to HUD!
