The head of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority resigned suddenly Thursday.

Dawn Sanders-Garrett was the executive director for the BMHA.

Mayor Byron Brown issued this statement:

"I thank her for her more than 10 years of service to the BMHA and wish her well in her future endeavors. I am looking forward to a positive future for BHMA and working with the new leadership in confronting the challenges that public housing authorities face across the country on a daily basis. Sadly, the current administration in Washington has not made public housing a priority."

7 Eyewitness News has reached out to the BMHA for a statement and is waiting to hear back.
