Housing advocate groups create website to track Ben Carson


Guillermo Mayer, president and CEO of the San Francisco nonprofit and legal advocacy group Public Advocates, along with the Poverty & Race Research Action Council, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and PolicyLink, collaborated together to create CarsonWatch to document the secretary’s public statements and appearances, the article explained.

From the piece in CNBC:

The founders of CarsonWatch hope to broaden to coalition to include housing advocates in cities across the country, to both increase on-the-ground coverage of Carson and widen the discussion on housing policy. They also hope to engage lawyers, to see when and if legal actions may be warranted.

After launching in mid-March, CarsonWatch and its allies have attended Carson’s poorly promoted listening tour, and plan to continue to report on his statements and public events. The upcoming budget deliberations offer an important opportunity to track how different HUD programs fare and keep the agency’s leaders, as well as the administration and Congress, accountable.

Here is a screen grab of the website.
