Brooklyn tenants demand NYCHA resignations

BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn tenants from the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) are demanding that the chairman and other board members step down.

Residents of the Howard Houses started a petition, claiming that the NYCHA board isn't doing a good job of making the city's public housing livable. They are threatening to file a class action lawsuit if its members don't voluntarily resign.

News 12 reached out to NYCHA for comment, but has not yet heard back.
