I’m pleased to report that Governor Deval Patrick has appointed my colleague Kurt James, a director in Rackemann’s Real Estate Department, to a five-year term on the Marblehead Housing Authority Board of Commissioners.  Kurt has 25 years of experience in real estate development and finance with a particular focus on affordable housing, so he’ll be a great asset to the board.  An article from the Marblehead Reporter about Kurt’s appointment is here.  Congratulations Kurt!
