Cincinnati’s housing authority hired a new executive director Tuesday after more than four years of failed searches, lawsuits and turmoil.
Gregory Johnson, the former head of Dayton’s housing authority, won the job after a search that lasted most of this year. He has been in the affordable housing business for 16 years and comes with high praise from local officials who say they selected the right man to lead the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority.
But the choice also comes with some controversy.
Johnson, 42, would not discuss the Dayton job Tuesday, other than to say he “didn’t have any issues in Dayton.”
