Eight Forty-Eight

Future of Chicago Housing Authority in flux after resignation of CEO Lewis Jordan

The Chicago Housing Authority is looking for new leadership. On Tuesday, CEO Lewis Jordan stepped down amid scrutiny over the way he used a city credit card. Jordan wrote to CHA board Chairman Jim Reynolds, saying the issue was becoming a "impediment" to his job performance. Jordan also says his spending is consistent with CHA and federal housing policy.

WBEZ’s South Side bureau reporter Natalie Moore joined Eight Forty-Eight to discuss the present and future of the CHA.
