No more free cars at the Philadelphia Housing Authority

One of the lasting emblems of wasteful spending at the public housing agency – the abundance of employees who had agency cars to take home and use as they pleased – has been eliminated. Forty employees got letters last week telling them to turn in the keys to their cars. It’s all part of what interim PHA Executive Director Kelvin Jeremiah calls ongoing “housekeeping” at the troubled agency. More than a year ago, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development took control of PHA after the sexual-harassment scandal that led to the 2010 firing of Executive Director Carl R. Greene.
