In Case You Missed It

Thanks to Virginia Bullock

After 20 years as a housing planner for the Town of Brookline, Virginia Bullock (pictured below at our celebration last week) begins a new work chapter this week as Manager of State Housing Programs at the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development. We will greatly miss her deep affordable housing knowledge and thank her for so many years of dedication – in her tenure, the Town of Brookline permitted over 600 deed-restricted affordable units.
