WASHINGTON - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Mel Martinez today swore in Kenneth M. Donohue, Sr., as HUD's new Inspector General. Donohue, who came from the private sector where he worked on law enforcement and investigative issues, was appointed by President Bush and unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate on March 22.

"I look forward to a great working relationship with Ken," said Martinez. "His long and noteworthy experience in the public and private sectors makes him an outstanding choice to lead the Inspector General's Office."
