The Housing Authority of the City of Asheville elected Cassandra Wells to serve as Board Chair and Raynetta C. Waters to serve as Vice Chair at their June 26, 2019 meeting.
Mrs. Wells is an Asheville Housing resident and Ms. Waters is a business owner. Both women live in the Southside Community and have served on the Board of Commissioners for several years. They step into these new roles after the recent passing of Lewis Isaac, former Board Chair.
Mrs. Wells commented: “We mourn the passing of our dear friend and leader, Lewis Isaac, but look forward to leading this important community board into the future. My goal is to strengthen the spirit of community in our neighborhoods and work to lift each other up with a positive culture of employment.”
