Mayor Rawlings Appoints Reginald Gray to DHA Board of Commissioners
Jorge Baldor Elected as New Board of Commissioners Chairman
DHA Housing Solutions for North Texas, announces that Jorge Baldor, founder of the Latino Center for Leadership Development, has been elected the new chairman of DHA’s board of commissioners. Victor Vital has stepped down from his role as DHA board chairman after serving on the board of commissioners for five years.
Mayor Mike Rawlings appointed educator Reginald Gray to DHA’s board of commissioners. Mr. Gray has two degrees from Southern Methodist University — a bachelor’s in advertising and a master’s in economics. He’s also working on his doctorate. As an economics professor for Mountain View College, Gray creates a strong enthusiasm and foundation in financial education among his students.
“Mr. Vital, having served as chairman and vice chairman, has been a strong champion of DHA families,” says Troy Broussard, president, and chief executive officer of DHA. “While we will miss Mr. Vital, we are honored to have Mr. Baldor serve as the board chair. We welcome Mr. Baldor as the incoming chairman and we welcome Reginald Gray to the DHA board of commissioners. Both leaders are outstanding additions who are actively involved in the community, lending their talent and expertise to strengthening the next generation. DHA is excited about the unique and diverse expertise they bring to DHA and we look forward their leadership and guidance.”
Mr. Baldor was born in Havana, Cuba, and lives in Dallas, Texas. In 2018, he was nominated by The Dallas Morning News as Texan of the Year. In 2016 he was named by D CEO Magazine as Outstanding Latino Advocate. The Latino Center for Leadership Development, which he founded in 2015, has received numerous awards and recognitions, including a feature as Dallas’ New Latino Leaders by D Magazine in August 2016. He most recently founded Mercado369 in the heart of Oak Cliff, a community art center and cafe reflecting the rich culture and history of Latin America from Mexico to Argentina.
“Our DHA board members are committed to advancing the mission of the organization, and as chairman I look forward to strengthening our path toward housing innovation and inclusivity for DHA, our clients, and our community,” says Mr. Baldor. “Together, Vice Chairman Jim Garner and Commissioners Theresa Flores, Deborah Culberson, and Reginald Gray are part of the solution – a solution for quality affordable housing in healthy, inclusive North Texas communities.”
