Carrion's Inauspicious Start

Adolfo Carrion, the former Bronx BP, hasn't exactly set the world on fire since moving to DC to head up the White House Office of Urban Affairs. As Politico reports, he's yet to give a major speech about his role or the administration's vision for urban policy, raising important questions about the power his office is likely to wield.

  1. I think Carrion was placed in the office as a figurehead. I can't imagine a five person office being able to significantly alter any sort of urban policy issues. Where do you even begin with a job like this? Seems like his job will mostly be listening to experts, going to conferences and navigating that huge bureaucracy over there.
