 SHELLEY A. LONGMUIR NAMED DEPUTY GENERAL COUNSEL AT DOT
 WASHINGTON, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Secretary Andrew H. Card Jr. today named Shelley A. Longmuir as deputy general counsel at the Department of Transportation.
 "Shelley is a veteran of government service and private law practice. The legal and policy expertise that she brings to the department will be put to good use," Card said. "I'm pleased that she has accepted the new challenge."
 From 1989 until the present, Longmuir has held various senior positions at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Since 1991, she served as counselor to the secretary at HUD. In that capacity, she was senior policy and legal adviser in charge of reviewing issues relating to development and implementation of national housing programs. In addition, as the secretary's designee for fair housing and contract appeals, she issued final judicial determinations for the department in these sensitive and high level cases.
 From 1990 to 1991, Longmuir served as deputy general counsel responsible for analysis and review of legal issues arising from national housing policy matters. She was deputy assistant secretary for housing and deputy commissioner of the federal housing administration. In this capacity, Longmuir was the primary creator of the department's revolutionary aggressive servicing program for multi-family projects aimed at correcting abuses in those high occupancy projects.
 In recognition of her achievement, Secretary Jack Kemp presented Longmuir with the Golden Eagle Award, the department's highest award.
 From October 1987 until May 1989, Longmuir was a criminal appellate attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, and from September 1984 to August 1987, an associate with Breed, Abbott & Morgan in New York City.
 Longmuir graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Brown University in 1979 and from New York University School of Law in 1983. While at New York University, she was managing editor of the Journal of International Law and Politics from 1982 to 1983.
 Longmuir clerked in 1983 to 1984 for the Honorable Maryanne Trump Barry in federal district court in New Jersey. She is an active member of the Patron Committee and fund-raiser at Union Settlement House in New York.
