Lakeland Housing Authority officials said today that public housing resident commissioner, Nita McGee, confessed to the misuse of Resident Advisory Association funds for personal gain to Lakeland Police Department detectives and officials from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development‘s inspector general‘s office.

McGee was the treasurer of the Lakeland Housing Authority Resident Advisory Association, where investigators determined approximately $6,000 had been missing from the association’s bank account and misused. The original sources of the monies were from fund raising and a donation by a local Medicare provider and not money from the Lakeland Housing Authority or from HUD.

Housing Authority officials said it was not known if she had been arrested on charges.
