On Wednesday, the Pinellas County Housing Authority (PCHA) had their annual meeting to elect new officers. Joseph Triolo was re-elected chairman while former Chairperson Angela Rouson was elected vice-chairperson for the upcoming year. The PCHA has had a dramatic turnaround and is becoming increasingly active in producing affordable housing units for the citizens of Pinellas County.  Since the turbulent departure of its past executive director, the Board along with its new Executive Director Debbie Johnson, has become engaged in housing issues from Pinellas Hope’s homeless population to working with the Public Defender’s Office on a program to place released inmates in transitional housing to plans for veterans’ and workforce housing communities.
