Report: missing records at Dayton housing agency

Published:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A report says records are missing for most of the properties sold by a Dayton housing authority that manages a program to help the disadvantaged buy homes.

The missing records in Greater Dayton Premier Management's home-ownership program include a property bought in 1996 by the mother of agency CEO Gregory Johnson.

Johnson, director since 2004, has announced his resignation effective May 31 without giving a reason why he is leaving.

The Dayton Daily News reports Sunday (http://bit.ly/IIsXq7 ) it reviewed thousands of agency records and found no paper documentation for several properties, including one other purchased by a current agency administrator before he was hired.

The agency told the paper it has about 20 percent of the records for the properties in the program and doesn't know why some weren't kept.
