The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor
City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Ivan:

We thought you might be interested in the enclosed from the
Department of Housing and Urban Development.

For your information I have tendered my resignation as Chairman
of the Housing Resources Committee to the Mayor elect so he can
plan accordingly. My reason is that my position has excluded
our firm from taking any housing commissions. Our failure in
recent months to obtain other types of commissions, which we
anticipated might be ours, and the contraction in general in
building has made it imperative that we seek work in the housing
field. I also turned down the Governor's request to serve on
his committee.

It has been a really rewarding experience to serve as your
Chairman. Your contribution in the field of housing will be
one of the hall marks of your administration and I am happy that
I had a role in it.
It has been a great eight years and as Pericles time was known as
the "Golden Age of Athens", your time will, I am sure, become the
"Golden Age of Atlanta".
With warmest regards.

Cecil A, Alexander
