Change is coming to the top of the board of the Battlefords Housing Authority.
Amber Stewart confirmed in a post on Facebook that she is joining the board of directors of Battlefords Housing Authority as chair.
“I look forward to working with the staff, tenants and the community to work together to address current issues as well as to continue to provide safe affordable housing to people in the Battlefords,” Stewart said on Facebook.
She will take over the role from outgoing chair Ken Holliday.
Stewart is currently the executive director of the Battlefords and Area Sexual Assault Centre. She was the candidate for the NDP in the Battlefords in the most recent provincial election.
More announcements are expected soon about the composition of the new board. Battlefords Housing Authority has seen its share of controversy in recent months over the living conditions at Valleyview Towers, with widespread reports of crime, disorderly conduct, smoking and other issues at the once seniors-only facility.
