Missing Tim

tim puringtonIt is with a heavy heart the HHA returned to regular business, convening our first board meeting since the passing of Commissioner Timothy Purington.  Tim’s presence was definitely missed not just because of his size but more importantly because of his ability to provide well thought out, kind direction centered around the important task of making good homes for those in need.

Tim leaves a legacy of advocacy and passion for those most vulnerable members of our community.  The impact Tim had with his work around harm reduction and at the Housing Authority cannot be understated, his work has made life possible and better for thousands. His soft spoken but steadfast stance on those issues important to the community will surely be missed.

We at the Housing Authority are much better off for having Tim work with us and for that we are thankful.
