    Assistant Property Manager, Ron Holt, has been with the agency for 11 years and has been an Assistant Manager for the last year. Ron is a dedicated employee and contributes to the agency by providing exceptional oversight and management of all procurement and contracted services at Robles Park. Ron learned property management as a property associate at North Boulevard Homes and Robles Park for 5 years before transferring to Section 8 as a counselor, for another 5 years.

Ron had a vision of what he could contribute to the agency to improve its efficiency when he interviewed for the position. One of his goals was to implement an inventory tracking system to control costs, which he completed within his first 90 days. Another goal was to track all material costs associated with a work order and ensure all work is completed in a timely manner.

From the very start of employment she displayed passion for the job as well as the community. Ms. Johnson is dedicated, reliable and continuously goes the extra mile when called upon. She has filled in the gap on several occasions when both Cedar Pointe and C. Blythe Andrews went through hiring transitions. Of all the temporary employees whom have come and gone it was obvious that she was a keeper.

    The Assisted Housing Department would like to recognize FSS Counselor, Eva Reale as Employee of the Month. Eva has been with the agency for 13 years and has been an FSS counselor for the past five. As a dedicated, long term employee Eva contributes to the success of the agency and the department, by providing exceptional customer service to clients and necessary support to her co-workers. Eva is an adept FSS Counselor. She is extremely knowledgeable in FSS Program policies and procedures and effectively tracks her client’s needs, goals and progress. She monitors reports, records and stays up to date on HUD’s FSS reporting requirements. But it is Eva’s desire to support her co-workers that makes her stand out. She deserves to be recognized for temporarily taking on the duties of a portability counselor which involved several tasks new to her. Eva has since volunteered to assist with other non-FSS related tasks and can be counted on to pickup the slack whenever a need arises. Eva is a no nonsense person with a heart of gold. She is compassionate and genuinely cares about the success of her clients and the well-being of her co-workers. When a co-worker became ill at work Eva sat with her with support and kept her calm until help arrived. She is quick to offer assistance to her co-workers by sharing information and helping to process their files when needed.

    Tireless, dependable, reliable and pleasant. These are some of the words used by his residents, colleagues and supervisor at the Robles Park community. Javier does the difficult jobs and makes sacrifices that usually go unrecognized. Taking after-hours calls is not an easy venture. These calls can come at any hour of the night or weekends. Where others shy away from this responsibility, Javier steps up and takes on this responsibility time and time again without any complaint. He can be relied on to cover for those employees out sick or on vacation. There is that smile and an upbeat personality that helps to make a bad situation fine. He is an excellent plumber, a great colleague and an asset to the Robles Park community and the Tampa Housing Authority. Thank you for recognizing Mr. Javier Diaz as October’s employee of the month.
