President Barack Obama today nominated Westporter Herbert M. Allison Jr. to oversee the Treasury Department’s Troubled Asset Relief Program.

If confirmed by the Senate, the Greens Farms resident would oversee the $700 billion financial rescue fund aimed at restoring rattled markets.

Allison, 65,  has been chief executive of Fannie Mae since it was seized by the government in September. He would succeed Neel T. Kashkari and become Treasury assistant secretary for financial stability.

In that role, Allison will be charged with overseeing several federal programs meant to improve the availability of credit, aid major automakers and bolster the housing market.

Hardy showed many of his meticulously drawn medical illustrations with explanations about each one.
