Honoring Fort Worth Housing Solutions’ New President
Elected officials, HUD officials and community leaders celebrated the appointment of Mary-Margaret Lemons as the agency’s president at a reception inside the pavilion at Sundance Square Plaza April 12.
Speaking from the podium, Fort Worth Assistant City Manager Fernando Costa stressed the importance of the agency’s partnership with the city. “For that partnership to work, we need leadership that can see above the tall grass but have its feet firmly on the ground,” he said to the crowd.
“We need leadership that can move the community forward but at a rate at which the rest of us can move as well,” he said, praising the Board of Commissioners for appointing Lemons.
Board of Commissioners Chairperson Terri Attaway introduced Lemons as the right leader for this time in the agency’s history. Regenia Hawkins, a director at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Fort Worth, thanked Lemons for taking the job and described the agency as HUD’s partner.
“I’m so very honored and humbled to have been selected to serve as Fort Worth Housing Solution’s president,” said Lemons at the event. “It’s a special honor for me because it provides me an opportunity, as a long-time resident of Fort Worth, to serve my hometown. To do all that I can, working alongside each of you, to provide much-needed quality, affordable housing to our fellow citizens and neighbors.”
