MAYOR NAMES ADA EDWARDS INTERIM DIRECTOR OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
March 24, 2010 -- Statement from Mayor Parker:
"I am pleased to announce that Ada Edwards, former City Council Member, will be the Interim Director of the Housing & Community Development Department. Ms. Edwards brings with her a world of experience into HCD. While on City Council, she served as the Chair of the City Council Housing Committee. Under former Mayor White and now in my administration, she is serving as an advocate for fostering community developments in disadvantaged areas in the city. She will be charged with making sure that all of the City's current commitments and applications for funds will continue to be processed in a timely fashion and that the department will continue to move forward until I name a new director for the department. We very much appreciate Ms. Edwards' willingness to help this great city move forward."
