Build It Back Boss Leaves
Kathryn Mallon went from DEP to Rapid Repair to Build It Back. And now’s she’s stepping away.
“I was merely on loan to get this program turned around. The City is in excellent hands with the crew here at 250 Broadway,” she told The Wave in an email.
At various meetings in Rockaway and Breezy Point, she expressed challenges with HUD guidelines but insisted Build It Back was ever closer to being an efficient housing recovery program.
What her resignation means to the program that has been beset with problems since its inception, remains to be seen.
As the Wave went to press, a successor hadn’t been named.
