Michael Kelly resigns from Philadelphia HA

In a sudden and unexplained move, Michael P. Kelly, the head of the Philadelphia Housing Authority, resigned Friday, stunning an agency still recovering from predecessor Carl R. Greene’s troubled tenure. “It’s for personal reasons,” Kelly said after a Board of Commissioner meeting Friday morning. The one-person PHA board, Karen Newton-Cole of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, accepted Kelly’s resignation Friday, effective immediately. Kelly will be replaced by Kelvin Jeremiah, PHA’s current director of audit and compliance.
