Announcing the appointment of Mr Cisneros, 45, a former mayor of San Antonio, Texas, Mr Clinton said his city-hall experience would help in solving the crisis in many of America's inner cities. Mr Cisneros is popular among Hispanics and played a conspicuous role supporting Mr Clinton during the elections. His political prospects were clouded shortly after he stepped down as mayor in 1989 when he confirmed he had had an extramarital affair while in office.
Mr Brown, 48, is executive director of the Disabled American Veterans, a lobbying group. His right arm is partially paralysed from a wound received in Vietnam.Reuse content
