Praise for HUD Staffers.
Michelle Obama visited the Department of Housing and Urban Development on her second stop of a listening tour through the federal government to thank employees for their work, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
“Every day you carry out the nation's work without any fanfare, oftentimes, attention, acknowledgment," Mrs. Obama told at least 600 enthusiastic HUD staffers. "You do it and get the job done, because it's the right thing to do."
Mrs. Obama said the department will play a critical role in the economic recovery, telling the employees that they will be asked to do more to keep people in their homes.
