Re: “Will Dellums Pay for Snubbing Obama?

How about this one: About a month ago, I was informed by a city hall insider that the assistant secretary to HUD was in Oakland meeting with the Director of Housing about the housing crisis and what Oakland may need from the Federal Neighborhood Recovery $3 billion fund. The Director of Housing tried repeatedly to get Dellums into the office to meet with the assistant Secretary, and couldn't get Dellums to break free from whatever important matter he was working on to meet with her.

Then, two weeks later the city of Oakland was informed it was only going to receive $8.2 million from the fund, and Dellums joined Congresswoman Barbara Lee in complaining to the federal government that it wasn't enough.

If the above account is true, one has to wonder what the Assistant Secretary of HUD was thinking when she received the complaint letter with Dellums' name on it, though he wouldn't meet with her when she was in town....hhhmm.
