New housing director Pamela Gaines full of fresh ideas

Pamela E. Davis, the new executive director of the Gainesville Housing Authority, is steering the once embattled housing authority back on track and partnering with the community to provide training and job opportunities to residents.

She already has helped steer the housing authority out of financial difficulties that resulted in lowering the Section 8 voucher payment standard to 80 percent and the changing of the occupancy standard to two heartbeats per bedroom, which is still in effect. Effective July 1, the payment standard will go up to 100 percent.
