Breaking: Housing Authority’s Christine Walker announces resignation
Jackson Hole, Wyoming – During a meeting of the Teton County Housing Authority on Wednesday, executive director Christine Walker announced she will resign from her position, effective October 1.
Walker offered a teary eyed statement to board members and staff citing some of her accomplishments during her nine-year tenure at the helm of TCHA, such as affordable housing developments like Wilson Park, 525 Hall and The Grove and securing land for future housing developments on the West Bank and next to The Aspens. Walker also noted she is proud to have led the community to adopt a goal of housing 65 percent of the workforce locally.
News of Walker’s resignation comes at a time when the valley is facing a housing shortage that is affecting a broad swath of both short- and long-term residents – what Teton County Commissioner Paul Vogelheim deemed during the meeting as “a crisis for many sectors of the workforce.”
