    Lackawanna Municipal Housing Authority

    Word is that Tom Radich resigned as Executive Director of the Lackawanna Municipal Housing Authority tonight. Does anyone know if this is true, and if so, who is his replacement?

    Also, any idea on why Mr. Radich would resign so abruptly? He is a relatively young man, and it doesn't seem to make sense.

    Probably has another job at the water authority lined up also. The LMHA is outdated 70's crap needs to be abolished.

    How dumb!!!!!!!!!!

    Our Ceo of Lackawanna sent to the Commissioners on the of LMHA a letter (delivered by police officers) advising them their services were no longer needed. The letter was sent back advising him, he did not appoint them to their position. They were appointed by the tenants.

    The Authority is governed by a seven member Board of Commissioners (Board). Five Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Lackawanna and two are elected at-large from the tenant population.

    So what's the story? The first post asking why Tom Radich resigned has not been addressed.

    What prompted the Mayor to do this? "Our Ceo of Lackawanna sent to the Commissioners on the of LMHA a letter (delivered by police officers) advising them their services were no longer needed."

    POWER.....the only reason. He now lost that because he doesn't have "control" over the board. He will not be able to gain control of this board while he is still mayor.....one down.....couple more to go!!!

    I especially like the addendum where Radich asks the Comptroller's Office to suppress a public document because it might be embarrassing to his administration!!

    Correction.

    He will gain control of the Board, but will not be able to appoint a new Executive Director through that controlling majority, because the current board (not aligned with Polanski), as a result of Radich's resignation, locked into a three year contract with the new ED last night.

    Polanski will gain his majority next week, but they will not be able to vote in a new appointee without violating that three year employment contract.
