Statement on the Passing of Commissioner Joan Markman

Joan Markman

(Philadelphia, PA- January 15, 2015) - It is with great sadness that PHA announces the passing of Commissioner Joan Markman, on January 14, 2015, due to illness.  Commissioner Markman served with distinction on PHA's Board of Commissioners since the creation of its nine-member Board in April of 2013, and was on the Policy and Planning Committee, the Audit Committee, the Strategic Directions Steering Committee, and chaired the Nominating Committee. 

Commissioner Markman's tenure was marked by her great dedication, fairness, and insight.  Her integrity, as well as her compassion, commitment to public service, and concern for PHA's staff and residents, will be truly missed.  Today at PHA's Board meeting, there will be a moment of silent reflection for Commissioner Markman and a proclamation will be read into the record in her honor.

Our thoughts and condolences are with her family.
