Bush to recess appoint Barth as HUD CFO

President Bush intends to appoint during the congressional recess Carin Barth of Texas as chief financial officer of the Housing and Urban Development Department.

The President nominated Barth on June 1 after publishing his intention to nominate her the week before.

Barth has been president of LB Capital Inc. of Houston and serves on the board of directors for Southwest Bank of Texas. The president bypasses confirmation by the Senate with the recess appointment. Barth replaces Angela Antonelli, who left HUD last year.

The CFO is responsible for implementing policies that govern all aspects of departmental financial management and oversees the design, implementation and coordination of HUD's financial information and general management systems.

Her responsibilities include systems integration, development of the annual financial statements, accounting operations and the implementation of the department's management control program.

Barth earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Alabama and a master's degree from Vanderbilt University.

Bush announced his plan Friday.
