BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Dawn Sanders-Garrett, executive director of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority, has resigned.
News 4 has confirmed that Sanders-Garrett’s resignation was announced at the end of Thursday’s BMHA meeting.
She served the BMHA board for more than ten years.
Buffalo mayor Byron Brown shared the following statement Thursday night:
I am looking forward to a positive future for BHMA and working with the new leadership in confronting the challenges that public housing authorities face across the country on a daily basis. Sadly, the current administration in Washington has not made public housing a priority.
Gillian Brown, legal counsel for the BMHA, has been appointed interim executive director.
