WOONSOCKET – Vasiliki Milios, the interim executive director at the Woonsocket Housing Authority, resigned from her position on Monday, effective immediately. Milios has been serving as executive director since late 2021.

Milios told The Breeze that her reason for resigning goes back to not being on the same page as the rest of the board.

Qualifications matter; by now it's clear to everyone that the WHA suffers greatly from a lack of competent leadership. The Chairman of the Board was appointed to that position due to clearly partisan reasons and we have seen the result of that, time after time. Mr. Houle is a disgraced former police chief with zero education or training relative to his appointed position and it comes as no surprise to me that the current executive director abandoned her position, for who would want to work under such a dysfunctional board? The residents of the Housing Authority deserve better.
