Housing authority director, staff get raises

by Rachel Molenda, Staff writer
The agency’s director, Mark Taylor, will also get his first raise in five years.

“The whole time that Mark has been our executive director or CEO, we’ve done a great deal of work. He’s been extremely proactive … almost to the point where he didn’t bother us about salary,” said Commissioner Katherine “Kitty” Dooley, who also sits on the board’s Personnel Committee.
Taylor, who had an annual salary of $93,000, is now paid $120,978.(what about the HUGE bonus he gets every year?)

The board recognized pay adjustments were long overdue for Taylor and his staff.( that's why all the good employees have left ...no money , no retirement & no insurance)
“The only sad part about this is that it does outline how far behind we really are. We have one of the best ran organizations in the country, and unfortunately some of our staff are some of the least paid,” Vice-chairman Tim Morris said.(Who are you kidding? It's almost ready to be taken over by HUD for mis-management!)

Dooley said the agency’s relationship with the community was “at an all time low” when Taylor took his position as director.That has since changed.(really? Go ask the residents of Carroll Terrace! Lol)

“Mark knows the people in the developments, and he’s as comfortable walking through the developments and speaking with residents (he never walks it alone!) as he is meeting with a developer and speaking about how we’re going to spend the millions of dollars on a project,” Dooley said.

This is a shame! Lies,Lies and more Lies!

Mark Taylor has received raises when the employees received nothing for years! That's a lies that he never got a raise in 10 years!

He has run Charleston Housing in the dirt! Employees stealing money, supplies, cabinets, toilets, fridge's, stoves, sinks, cars, heating units, you name it and he never has them in court!

Employees getting caught selling drugs while living in a Charleston Housing house and still employed....dope found in employees units, employees having sex in company cars, in the offices and in apartments, many affairs happening!

Mark & his boytoy owning houses and renting them out with the Section 8 vouchers he is in control of! Such mis-management!!

Cat believe the comments by Kitty Dooley, who should know better. This is a prime example of what's wrong in Charleston, and the state as a whole. And electing Rep. won't make any difference. You really have to question our intelligence at this point.

Rep is not an elected position. Danny Jones appoints the resident rep on the cecomendation of Mark Taylor.

What is Carmen Easter's title, and does she work in the executive offices at the main CKHA headquarters located at 1525 Washington Street West (where Mark and Jeff and Jezebel Janice all work)?

Yeah she works at main headquarters..not sure what her title is..has free reign of every title apparently..the way I understand it she has been given 2 titles which I'm sure should be looked into. Has made Ckha a very difficult place to work..I been told she wants to make a name for herself by getting rid of employees that actually help build the agency. She thinks she is charge of all..someone on the board should look into what she is doing to the organization.. tearing it down from the inside..unhappy workers throughout due to her power struggling ways

Then Mark Taylor is still a [email protected]@y I guess because HE IS the HIGHEST Executive Director at CKHA and he reports directly to the CKHA Board of Commissioners. He literally can fire ANYONE underneath him at any time if he so chooses!
