New housing authority director isn't one to take job sitting down

CHAMPAIGN — David A. Northern Sr. is of the mindset that in his field, a job well done means leaving your desk.

The newly appointed director of the Housing Authority of Champaign County said he doesn't see his work as a spectator sport.

"You have to be in the trenches working hard, and that's the type of person I am," Northern said. "You have to let individuals know and see that you care about where they work and play."

Nearly eight months after former HACC Director Ed Bland left for a job in Virginia, the agency's board of commissioners announced Northern's appointment Wednesday following a national search.
