Housing authority reform faces local pushback


“Let’s not just take politics from the local level and put it on the regional level,” said O’Neill. “I think there are larger issues with public housing.”

Echoing MassNAHRO’s call for more targeted reforms, state Rep. Campbell said LHAs would be better off regionalizing functions like procurement. Campbell said she is against Patrick’s RHA plan because she believes it will create more bureaucracy at the expense of localized services for public housing residents.

“You need dedicated people on site that know the residents and know the needs of the community and can be a community advocate,” said Campbell.
