Board votes not to renew South Bend Housing Authority Director’s contract

NOW: Board votes not to renew South Bend Housing Authority Director’s contract

SOUTH BEND, Ind.—The Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted not to renew the contract for the South Bend Housing Authority’s Executive Director, according to a Housing Authority official. 

The board voted unanimously to terminate Tonya Robinson’s employment at the end of her current contract, which will expire on September 28, 2019.

Robinson was suspended on September 17 with pay while the board reviewed her performance and conduct as Executive Director.

In July, three separate properties were raided by FBI officials in connection with an investigation into the South Bend Housing Authority.

Virginia Calvin, the President of the Board of Commissioners, released the following statement:

“Affordable housing is critical to the South Bend community, and this unanimous decision by the Board is intended to ensure that the Housing Authority is fulfilling its mission and living up to the high standards we have set for it.”

Dr. Calvin does not live in South Bend. She shouldn't be on any board for the City of South Bend,Ms Robinson should be prosecuted for stealing. Sounds like a federal offense to me,F.B.I. involvement usually means federal law's have been broken.The Mayor is too busy wasting tax dollars everywhere except were it is needed. Sewer's are not being used right E.P.A. fined undisclosed amount for sewage going into st. joe river,sewer rates more than doubled during petey boy's watch he cant handle south bends problem's. He is not presidential He cant fix a 100,000 population, he is not MORAL, The west side is a shooting gallery.he is responsible for H.U.D. and the police not wanting to be here w/mayor that throw's law enforcement under the bus.not to mention the fiasco w/ Chief Boykin,s.
