Today Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.), Chairman of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, issued the following statement on the expected nomination of Steven Preston, head of the Small Business Administration (SBA), for Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
"I've worked with Steven Preston as the SBA Administrator for almost two years now and I'll be sorry to see him go. Mr. Preston inherited an agency in disarray, and he's worked hard to right its course and to improve relationships with Congress. We may have some differences on policy, but he's always been professional, responsive, and dedicated to the mission."
