Regarding the Oct. 18 news article “ Housing director to retire”: I was surprised, disappointed and sad to read of the retirement of Steve Beam as the Raleigh Housing Authority director. The residents of Raleigh are losing a knowledgeable and talented administrator.
Some public housing directors in North Carolina have sought his advice and counsel. He is a giant among public housing directors. The N&O should write about his accomplishments. May I suggest articles on Halifax Court, Chavis Heights and Walnut Terrace, to name just a few? Surely he deserves some credit.
