New HUD Secretary’s Housing Tour Delayed by Elevator

New Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson stopped in Miami, Florida, recently as part of a listening and learning tour, which included visiting a local affordable housing complex. The tour, which was locally important, became national news when Carson got stuck in the facility’s elevator for 20 minutes. As firefighters worked to free him from the elevator, which they did without incident, former NBA star Alonzo Mourning and others waited outside with encouraging words, like, “Don’t worry. You’re not going to run out of air.”
