William E. McGonagle

Bill McGonagle was born and raised in a South Boston public housing development in a family of eight. He has worked with or on behalf of the public housing residents of Boston for more than 30 years.
He began working with public housing residents first as a youth worker at the Brighton Y.M.C.A., where he worked with young people from the Commonwealth and Faneuil public housing developments. He later worked at the South Boston Boys & Girls Club with young people from the West Broadway development.
Bill started working at the Boston Housing Authority in 1981 as a member of the BHA's Department of Public Safety. He was subsequently selected by BHA Receiver Harry Spence to participate in a BHA sponsored management training program. The program included graduate level management classes at the Boston University School of Social Work. Bill also served as a public housing development manager and as an Area Director overseeing the management of the BHA's 37 elderly/disabled public housing developments throughout Boston. He later served as Executive Assistant to former BHA Administrator Doris Bunte where he became deeply involved in the integration of the public housing developments in South Boston and Charlestown. Bill was then appointed Deputy Administrator on April 1, 1992. He served in that role for 17 years and for three Administrators; David Cortiella, Joseph Feaster, and Sandra B. Henriquez. Mayor Thomas M. Menino appointed Bill as Interim Administrator for the Authority on June 11, 2009.

"It became clear to us at BHA several years ago that federal funding for public housing as we knew it . . . was gone and was not going to come back," said BHA administrator and panelist Bill McGonagle.
At one point, the BHA estimated it would require $650 million to $750 million to fund capital improvements on its existing housing stock, leading to "some sober thinking about how we deal with this huge funding gap," he said.
