I-Team: Top exec out at RI Housing

Posted: Updated:
CRANSTON, R.I. -

A top executive at Rhode Island Housing is no longer employed the agency, the NBC 10 I-Team learned Wednesday.

Sources told the I-Team that the agency's deputy director, Gayle Corrigan, was walked out of the building this week after about six months.

Deputy Assistant Director of Law at Rhode Island Housing Michael Milito wouldn't say if Corrigan was fired and said it wasn't policy to discuss personnel matters.

A representative for Corrigan told NBC 10 that she is "not saying anything at this point."

Corrigan became Rhode Island Housing's deputy director in June making about $157,500 a year. Prior to Rhode Island Housing, she served as the receiver's chief of staff in Central Falls.

In 2012, while essentially running the city of Central Falls, the I-Team reported Corrigan was fired from her previous job under questionable circumstances.

The I-Team obtained a document from the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights that said her former employer, Senseco Marine, claimed Corrigan was pocketing money in a labor scheme.

"Corrigan was terminated for cause as a result of violating her fiduciary duties to Senesco Marine, while an officer of the company. Unbeknownst to Senesco, Corrigan had incorporated and was surreptitiously running a staff leasing company which provided contract labor to Senesco, from which she was profiting," according to the document.

At the time of the 2012 reports, then-Central Falls receiver and former state Supreme Court Judge Robert Flanders told the I-Team he had no knowledge of Corrigan's firing and said he had no question about her integrity or competence.
