Karen Hoffman resigns from the Rockford Housing Authority

Karen Hoffman officially resigns from the RHA Board with NeAngela Dixon taking her place.

ROCKFORD (WREX) — Karen Hoffman officially resigns her position as the Rockford Housing Authority Chairperson after Rockford City Council votes to appoint NeAngela Dixon.

Hoffman says she put in her resignation earlier this summer but couldn't officially resign until the city council appointed a replacement.

She says she filed her resignation due to upcoming housing contracts that would come through city council. If she remained on the RHA board, she would have to abstain from those items as a city council alderman.

13 Investigates reported five former RHA employees filed complaints of racial discrimination against the RHA in September.

Hoffman says her resignation has nothing to do with the report or the allegations from those employees.

Dixon will take over for Hoffman before the next RHA board meeting.
