    Biography: Adolfo Carrión gained national notoriety when he was named the first White House Director of Urban Affairs by Barack Obama in 2009. In 2010, he left the post to become the regional director for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's New York and New Jersey Regional Office; he remained there until 2012. Before his involvement with the White House, Carrión was active in New York politics, serving on the City Council and being elected twice to the position of Bronx Borough President. He was also instrumental in bringing about the new Yankees Stadium.
