Skirvin leads lobby yet it is no secret who the busiest lobbyist in Columbus against Urban redevelopment and housing was. It was w. Ray Skirvin a member of the metropolitan housing authority. He was appointed to the housing authority by James g. Stewart former mayor and approved by a unanimous vote of the Republican councilmen. They professed to believe that Skirvin would attack what they called poor administration of Public housing. Time has shown that the charges of his opponents were True. He has done nothing for housing but has fought against it.
