In her opening remarks at the Agency's November Board meeting, Commissioner Tingerthal announced that Tom O’Hern had been hired as the agency’s general counsel. O’Hern had been supporting the Agency’s board from his position on the Attorney General’s staff. Tingerthal added that, going forward, the Agency will end this direct staffing arrangement with the Attorney General and will add additional legal positions to its staff. The Agency is now recruiting an attorney to focus on multifamily transactions. The Attorney General’s staff will still handle lawsuits and complaints directed at the Agency, such as the current one concerning fair housing, and will be available if the board seeks its own representation.
