Housing Authority adds 1 to board

Hailey vacancy still open

Express Staff Writer

Bonnie Moore became the new Sun Valley representative to the Blaine County Housing Authority yesterday, when the county commissioners appointed her to the authority's board.

Moore is the founder and owner of Nationwide Mortgage in Ketchum, and has more than 30 years of experience as a real estate agent and personal banker. Experience in real estate was exactly what the board was looking for, according to the authority's executive director, Kathy Grotto.

Moore is replacing departing Sun Valley representative Milt Adam, a retired engineer.

Commissioner Anna Mathieu, the representative from Hailey and an agent with Windermere Real Estate, is also leaving the board. Though Mathieu's spot is still open, Grotto said she was happy to find someone for the Sun Valley vacancy with real estate experience.

Moore said she was looking forward to making a difference in the community as part of the authority.

"We've always had an affordable housing issue here, so it's nice to do something that benefits our community," she said.

She said she also hopes to improve the communications between the organization and the city of Sun Valley.

The authority is still looking to fill the vacancy left by Mathieu.

"There's a really great opportunity now for a Hailey resident to give back to the community," Grotto said.
