The District of Columbia Housing Authority Board of Commissioners thanked outgoing Commissioner Jenny Reed for her years of service.

Reed is the new deputy budget manager for the District and said her farewells at the February 11 board meeting.

Calling her “one of the smartest human beings” she has ever met, DCHA Executive Director Adrianne Todman said, “Jenny Reed had the ability to put human faces on the numbers.”

Reed served as a housing advocate representative and really listened to her constituents, Todman said.

“Jenny Reed was not only an asset to the Resident Services Committee, she had my back,” said Commissioner Aquarius Vann-Ghasri. “Jenny Reed empowered residents.”

Board Chairman Terri Thompson thanked Reed for her hard work and dedication.

“Thank you for the opportunity to serve on the board,” Reed said. “I’m constantly amazed at the amount of good work that is done day in and day out on behalf of the residents.”
