The City of Victoria is seeking a resident of public housing to serve on the Victoria Housing Authority board.

The Victoria Housing Authority provides low-income residents with decent housing through its public housing program and housing choice voucher program. Board members are appointed by the mayor. At least one board member must reside at a Victoria Housing Authority property.

Mayor Jeff Bauknight recently appointed Cynthia Staley, president and executive director of Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity, to fill a vacancy left on the board after the resignation of board chairman Bud Oliver. Oliver had served as chairman for two years. Bauknight also appointed board member Raquel Garza to serve as chairwoman.

Jeff Bauknight“I’m thankful to Bud Oliver for the contribution of his time and talents to the Victoria Housing Authority board,” Bauknight said. “One additional opening on the VHA needs to be filled by a current VHA resident. I want to encourage residents to apply so that I can appoint a qualified applicant to help provide housing to people who need it most.”

To apply, visit www.victoriatx.gov/boards-commissions and fill out the “Application for Appointment” form.  Bauknight intends to make an appointment in March.
