The Calexico Housing Authority Board of Commissioners is lacking an understanding of their roles. Serving as a public housing commissioner carries a lot of responsibilities. Devoting time to help improve the well-being of citizens in need can indeed be gratifying.
Unfortunately, this is not what is happening at the Calexico Housing Authority. Instead of serving the needs of the residents it has been said publicly by one commissioner and supported by the majority that it is not important what the "people, residents or tenants" want, but what is really important is what the majority of the board wants.
Good rapport between residents, administration, executive director and the Board of Commissioners is a must! When there is lack of communication or false promises between these entities, it leads to chaos and frustration. This is exactly where the resident organizations are.
The Board of Commissioners must operate according to the highest ethical standards and must not tolerate anything less. Lack of professionalism, unsound decisions, dissatisfaction with work performance, lack of leadership and cooperation must not be tolerated because the Board of Commissioners is the ultimate body responsible for all actions taken by the authority.
