Mt. Vernon Housing Authority Board Unanimously Votes to Terminate Executive Director Williams

MT. VERNON — Mt. Vernon Housing Authority Board Chairman Joe Wilks confirmed to WMIX / WDML News Thursday that the Housing Authority Board unanimously voted to terminate Executive Director Gloria Williams at their meeting Wednesday.

Williams came under scrutiny in the spring after she directed staff to remove belongings off porches prior to an property inspection in March. The Housing Authority Board in May voted to return those belongings to residents. Wilks said at the time that while the board did not agree with Williams’ decision, they did not think she made the decision with malicious intent.

Wilks refused to comment further on Williams’ termination.
