As you're reading Elizabeth Beilman's excellent follow-up piece, keep this quote from economic dishevelment director David Duggins in mind.
As local pretend-Democrats whistle Dixie(crat), Gahan prepares to launch the public housing pogrom.
“I think we’re happy that (public housing residents) would go and find any place — if it’s in the city, great, if it’s outside the city that makes them happy and gives them a quality of life that they’re looking for, I think that’s the whole concern.”
If you self-identity as a local Democrat, then consider this: You're demanding that Trump appointees resign for statements like this, but you're tolerating it from Gahan appointees.

New Albany Housing Authority fields concerned calls about demolition plans, by Elizabeth Beilman (News and Tribune)
Letters sent to tenants advising no action on demolition yet
NEW ALBANY — New Albany Housing Authority’s executive director distributed letters to all public housing tenants, following the release of a board’s proposed plan to demolish more than 600 units over the next 10 years.
Its message — nothing will be decided overnight.
“It’s just informing people factual things and not causing them to be unduly scared of the situation,” Executive Director Bob Lane told the News and Tribune ...
... The Housing Authority has fielded calls from residents, as well as community members, concerned about the authority’s future plans, he said.
“If you’re going to lose your housing, and that’s one of the basic human needs, you have concerns for that sort of thing,” Lane said.
