SF Glad to Lose New $200K Housing Director Fortner
Our sister paper in San Francisco notes that Miami-Dade's new $200K housing director Gregg Fortner isn't particularly well liked back home:
Two quotes from the piece: "Fortner fell out of favor with [Gavin] Newsom after the mayor discovered a
city-built playground at the Sunnydale development torched for the
second time and not repaired. Also, Fortner refused to comply with the
mayor's request of all department heads that they submit resignation
And this from Sara Shortt, director of the Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco: "Miami has one of the most troubled agencies in the U.S., and I'm shocked they didn't do their due diligence," she said.
