WHA hosts meet and greet with new CEO

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Wilmington Housing Authority's new CEO hit the ground running this week.

Katrina Redmon started her new job Monday, and today residents had a chance to meet her at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Community members also had an opportunity to sign up for one-on-one time with Redmon.

President of Creekwood South Glendora Mullins said communication between WHA residents and Redmon is the key to seeing change in the housing communities.

"I would like to see her come out and walk and get to meet some of the residents; not all of them, but some of them, to see the change and coming together as one to make things better," Mullins said.

Mullins said she saw a few Creekwood residents at the meet and greet, which she said is a sign that they want to work together with WHA toward a better future.

Do a walk around?

has she been following all of the recent shooting incidents?

Has she asked the WPD for a 12 month crime report?

Did she discuss budget realities with the residents?

Did she review specific rules applicable to eviction for law violations?

Does she understand there's more to her job than filing pretty reports with the state and Feds? Does she understand effective grant writing requests are not at the top of the list?

Does she understand area taxpayers, who support the free housing projects and Section 8 voucher programs want to see a reduction in crime; strict enforcement of eviction policies; and development of a plan which will lead to long term tenants transitioning to other housing?

Maybe she can host a pig picking @ Creekwood to really let the residents know she's on their side.

Good Luck and invest in some kevelar jackets if you're doing walk arounds during the evening.
