Date Published: 
July 11th, 2019

After a 40-year career at the Boston Housing Authority (BHA), Bill McGonagle is set to retire at the end of July. McGonagle, who grew up in BHA’s Mary Ellen McCormack public housing community and began working at the housing authority as a custodian, has served as BHA’s Administrator since 2009.

The Boston Globe notes that McGonagle is retiring with a “well-deserved reputation as one of the most passionate champions of poor people” in Boston’s city government. Of McGonagle, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said, “He cares about poor people, and he cares about helping people. Every development you go to, the tenants just love him.”

CLPHA thanks Mr. McGonagle for his many years of service to residents of public and affordable housing and for his commitment to improving the lives of the most vulnerable among us. We wish him well in his retirement.
