New Director

A new director of the Lenoir City Housing Authority has been appointed. Ms, Mary Sue Jordan was appointed to the position by the Housing Authority board several weeks ago.

Back in July, long time Lenoir City Housing Authority director, Debbie Cook, was fired from the job. The termination came after months of dramatic reporting on alleged financial irregularities in that office. A special called audit revealed issues that some Housing Authority board members felt were inappropriate spending even though Ms. Cook was able to answer the boards questions raised by the audit.

I haven't seen any official press releases or any articles in the local papers about the recent appointment. But several of you have written in to ask for an update. So that's all I know about the matter as of now.
