From the Boston Globe:
After 25 years, isn’t it time for a change?
That’s what Kate Bennett, administrator of the Boston Housing Authority, asks herself as she prepares for the next chapter in her career. Bennett, who former mayor Martin J. Walsh tapped to lead the agency in 2020, announced Wednesday that she is stepping down after filling a variety of BHA roles since 1998.
Bennett’s departure comes as the city faces a grueling housing crisis, where a shortage of housing stock has left Boston residents scrambling to afford the few, overpriced units that remain.
In her years in office, she has seen what works, what doesn’t, and what could be. In light of Bennett’s upcoming departure, the Globe asked the BHA’s administrator about her legacy, the status of the city’s housing crunch, and where we can go from here.
