Leadership at Atlanta’s housing authority might undergo another change in the near future.

In an October 16 letter to the Atlanta City Council, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said she plans to tap real estate professional Kirk Rich for a post on Atlanta Housing’s board of commissioners.

Rich, a 30-year veteran of the real estate field, now works for global agency Avison Young where he specializes in third-party representation, brokerage and consulting for commercial and residential projects around the United States.

“I believe that with his real estate background, Kirk Rich will serve the City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Housing Board of Commissioners with integrity and dedication,” Bottoms wrote.

If his appointment earns council approval during the Nov. 4 meeting, Rich will fill the seat vacated by board member Angela Ramson. Atlanta Housing representatives did not respond to Saporta Report’s inquiry regarding the nature of Ramson’s departure.

Rich’s pending appointment comes on the heels of Atlanta Housing welcoming a new CEO, Chicago’s Eugene Jones, who is expected to attend his first board meeting on Wednesday.

    Mayor Bottoms is a publicly verifiable high-criminal.

    she cheated her election in 2017 via being the highest bidder and delegitimized not only independent candidates like me but the election itself. she repeated censored me on public media for speaking these truths until the state stepped in and they realized it was hellah illegal~at which point they released their block lists of which i requested in feburary..but only after clearing it and destroying the public evidence of these improprieties.

    SHAMEFUL
