  •  Charlotte Mayor: Foxx being considered for Cabinet (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    President Barack Obama is considering Charlotte, North Carolina, Mayor Anthony Foxx for secretary of transportation, according to two people familiar with the matter.

    Foxx, 41, has been a proponent of street car and light-rail projects as mayor of the city, where the Democratic National Convention was held last year. He was first elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2011.

    Obama also is considering Deborah Hersman, the head of the National Transportation Safety Board, for the position, according to one of the people, both of whom asked for anonymity because the deliberations haven’t been made public. The president is considering candidates from within the transportation department as well.

    For what it's worth, Charlotte Mayor is up for reelection this year (it's a two year term).  I'd imagine if Foxx is picked it would set off a big battle for the mayorship.

    23, male, CA-18 (home and voting there), LA-01 (college).
