Tucson Mayor Regina Romero said Friday that’s she intends to remain in her post, and won’t be taking a potential federal appointment in the Biden administration. Romero had been vetted to be nominated as deputy secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Romero stopped short of directly confirming that she had been vetted for the post, although that possibility had been widely rumored for months and was confirmed last week by U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva.

“Although it would be an honor to even be considered for such an important post, my heart is here in Tucson, and I love the job Tucsonans elected me to serving as mayor of our beautiful city,” Romero said Friday.

“I have communicated with the Biden-Harris Administration my intent to remain in my current position as mayor, as well as my eagerness to work in partnership with their administration on issues important to Tucsonans,” she said.

‘We have an amazing opportunity to make progress on issues of local and national importance with a presidential administration that understands the importance of climate action, infrastructure investment, and job creation,” Romero said.
