ST. PETERSBURG — City Council members confirmed two appointments to the St. Petersburg Housing Authority board on Thursday.
C. Knox LaSister, a lawyer whose resume shows he has a long history in housing administration, and Roxanne Amoroso, who leads development company Mosaic Development, will now sit on the board.
The two appointments fill the final two vacancies created when council members upheld Mayor Rick Kriseman’s removal of three members earlier this year after the agency was cited by the federal government for allowing CEO Tony Love to live for nine months in an apartment designated for low–income families. Earlier this year, Kriseman also declined to reappoint another two board members to second terms.
LaSister will serve out the term of Harry Harvey, who Kriseman removed, which end Nov. 30, 2020. Amoroso will serve out the term of Anne Sherman-White, who was also removed. That term ends Nov. 30, 2019.
Last month, council members confirmed James Dates to take over for the removed Delphinia Davis, which ends Nov. 30, 2021.
