TMD Heard: Ald. Willie Hines To Be Next Secretary of the Housing Authority

A few days ago, The Drum was contacted by one of our friends who has ties to the Housing Authority with news of a succession plan. According to this source, current Secretary Tony Perez will be stepping down and Ald. Willie Hines (Pres. Common Council) will be assuming the position. The source continued that Hines has been a long-time appointee to the Board of the HA and has lost his desire to compete for Mayor Barrett’s throne. This also impacts the other chess pieces… Ald. Mike Murphy has withdrawn his interest in the city’s treasurer role and is now in play to assume Hines’ seat as President of the Common Council.

Stay tuned.

    Although I wish he was going to be mayor, the “dirt” of politics is not in him. Thankfully. This will be a good fit, but a huge loss for the city. As Mayor Balh blah needs stiff competition and we need someone with vision and true leadership in 2012 and beyond.
