President Barack Obama has *officially* named Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion to be his White House Director of Urban Affairs. The formal announcement came today, even as reports and reaction were leaked to the media yesterday morning.
News of his potential appointment was initially leaked back in December....by Carrion. He reportedly told students that he would be heading to D.C. for a job. He later brushed off media inquiries on the topic.
