Miami Mayor not on Caucus List

  The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, pressing Barack Obama to name more hispanics to top jobs in his administration, sent a letter with some suggestions to the Pres-Elect. The letter listed 15 names for 10 as-yet unfilled positions.  

   One name not on the CHC list– Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, who has said he’s “in the mix” for a Federal job.  Diaz has gotten mention as a possible Secretary of Transportation or HUD.

   The Hispanic Caucus has two suggestions for HUD– Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, and Saul Ramirez, a former Deputy HUD Secretary during the Clinton years.

   For Transportation Secretary, the CHC suggests Carrion or banker Maria Contreras Sweet, who once served as California’s Secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing.
