Housing Authority of Clayton County

Ms. Tonya Clarke, Chairperson

ms. tonya clarkeTonya Clarke was appointed to the Housing Authority of Clayton County Board of Commissioners by the Clayton County Commission in February of 2011. Shortly after beginning service on the board, she was asked to serve in a reserve role as Assistant Secretary as well, filling in for Executive Director and Board Secretary Linda Valentine if and when needed. She has been a resident of Clayton County since 1982.
Clarke is employed with Clayton County Public Schools, serving currently as a Teacher Development Specialist. Her responsibilities for the Clayton County School System include providing professional development for all employees, as well as in-room teacher support and training, mentoring, and modeling instructional practices.

She says she wanted to serve on the Housing Authority Board to support the increase of affordable and diverse housing in the community, in order to build a stronger economic foundation in Clayton County. She also says that she hopes to make the mission of the Authority well known throughout the community, so citizens might have better knowledge of the programs available to them, while garnering their support for HACC initiatives.
She notes that as a homeowner, housing issues impact the ability of residents to benefit from their largest personal investment – their homes.
“Housing issues can also affect the health and safety of our community when there is not enough diversity in housing, or if it is too dense or too sparse,” she notes.
When not volunteering as a Commissioner for the Housing Authority of Clayton County, Clarke serves as an Associate Pastor at Total Renewal Church of God, under the direction of Pastors Jeff and Rochelle Robinson. She also is a founding member of WTNW Ministries, Inc., which is a non-profit ministry started by her husband, joining other parents to strengthen the family unit through workshops, seminars, and literature. She also is Co-President of the Lovejoy High School Parent Teacher Student Association, as well as an Executive Board member for the Clayton County NAACP.
Outside of her profession, civic interests, and work in the ministry, Clarke says she enjoys spending time with her husband Whayne, Sr. and children Natosha and Whayne, Jr.


Mr. Curtis Green, Vice Chairman

Mr. Curtis Green, ChairmanHACC Commissioner Curtis Green, who joined the Authority Board in the summer of 2010, was selected by his fellow commissioners to serve as Chairman of the HACC in March of 2011.  He served in the capacity of Chairman until 2015.  As a Housing Authority member and professional photographer, he has a clear picture of the needs of his community, figuratively and literally.
As the owner of PortraitEFX of South Atlanta, Green works with local schools, preschools, daycare centers, churches, and other individuals and organizations, to provide them with professional photography services for their annuals, directories, occasions and events. But as a resident of Clayton County for more than 23 years, Green also sees the needs of his community through his civic and voluntary work in a number of capacities, which now include service as a member of the Housing Authority of Clayton County Board of Commissioners.

Prior to becoming owner of PortraitEFX of South Atlanta in March of 2010, Green spent 12 years as a sales manager for AT&T, and 14 years with Radio Shack prior to that. He has previous professional experience within the public housing sector as well, working for more than two years at the Columbus Housing Authority, shortly after graduating from Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Planning.

Upon answering the call from the Clayton County Board of Commissioners to serve his community as a member of the Housing Authority Board, Green expressed an interest to address the issues of property values, which need protection, and foreclosures, which need continual prevention and intervention, he says.
“I have always had an interest in local government and this (appointment to the HACC Board) will give me an opportunity to serve my community,” Green adds.

His previous community involvement has come in the form of membership in Andrews Chapel United Methodist Church, where he serves as an usher, as treasurer of the United Methodist Men, as a member of the Staff-Parrish Relations Committee, and as a part of the video ministry. Green is a Life Member of the NAACP of Clayton County, where he was past chairman of the Political Action Committee. He completed Leadership Clayton in 1999.

Green and his wife, Patricia, have two daughters who were both educated in Clayton County Schools and went on to graduate from college. His youngest daughter, in fact, is finishing her Doctorate at John Hopkins University. In his limited spare time, Green says he enjoys gardening and playing golf.

“I’m excited about joining the Housing Authority Board, and I look forward to advancing programs that continue to benefit our residents who are seeking quality, affordable housing,” he says.
