Selma Housing Authority president and CEO Kennard Randolph was at Capitol Hill on April 10 with the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials.

Randolph advocated for affordable housing solutions because he felt that safe and affordable housing is a fundamental right for everyone. 

“Access to affordable housing is not just a fundamental human need but a cornerstone of vibrant and inclusive communities,” Randolph said in a statement. “It is essential that we continue to engage with policymakers to ensure that housing remains a top priority on the national agenda.”

The collaborative efforts of the housing authority under the leadership of Randolph alongside fellow housing authorities and the Alabama Congressional delegation underscore a collective commitment to addressing housing challenges and advancing solutions that benefit individuals and families across the state.

Cicely Curtis, SHA’s Chief Operating Officer, said that Selma should be grateful to Randolph for fighting to get low-income housing.

“We appreciate you advocating for all but especially the underprivileged,” Curtis said in a statement.
