Longview, TX — Three Longview Housing Authority employees, including its director, have been reprimanded after a municipal probe uncovered a culture of favoritism and strong-arming.

Housing and Community Development Director Anji Johnson, Housing Supervisor Cheteva Marshall and 20-year senior caseworker Tonya Pierce threatened at least two property owners and made other exceptions for the benefit of Longview Housing Authority client LaTonya Ivory, the probe concluded.
