Michael Kelly, the former executive director of the District of Columbia Housing Authority, has been tapped for the general manager spot at the New York City Housing Authority, according to an announcement from city officials today. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that Kelly’s experience in Washington, D.C. was key to his selection. Despite Bloomberg’s confidence, Kelly’s record is not untarnished. The Washington Post reported that Kelly resigned from his D.C. post under some duress, with D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty criticizing the extraordinarily long waiting list for public housing in the city.
