The Register-Star reported today that a new executive director for the Hudson Housing Authority had been named: "Laulette to take the reins at Bliss Towers as new Housing Authority executive director."
Hiring someone to replace the beleaguered Jeff First, who announced his retirement in December, effective almost immediately, was the responsibility of the HHA Board of Commissioners. In the past few months, since First's departure, the board seems to have gone through some turmoil. Three commissioners resigned: Vernon Cross, in January; Kristal Heinz and Charlie Suisman, in February. Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton appointed three new people to the board, which now consists of Barbara Hall, Randall Martin, Martin Martinez, Anthony Pastel, Peggy Polenberg, and Alan Weaver. Tracy Brown, who was previously on the board and has been acting executive director, will return to the board when Anthony Laulette, the new executive director, begins his job on March 27.
