Housing authority continues to screen director candidates

Published 11:43 am Wednesday, November 16, 2011

The Vicksburg Housing Authority Board of Directors is continuing to review resumes for an executive director.

The board is seeking to replace Dannie Walker, who resigned in mid-August to take a similar job with the Ozark, Ala., Housing Authority. Walker, 52, had been the VHA’s executive director for two years.

His last day was Sept. 7, and the board began advertising for the position soon after Walker announced his resignation.

“We are trying to narrow the search for the director,” board chairman Christopher Barnett Sr. said after the board’s Tuesday night meeting. “We are still receiving and reviewing resumes.”
