NYCHA Tenant President Booted for Making Workers Do Her Hair, Clean Her Apartment in Pink Nightgown

The head of a Bronx tenants council was booted by NYCHA after she was accused of abusing her power by treating staffers as her personal assistants.

Monique Johnson, the president of the Throggs Neck Tenant Association, was accused of making NYCHA workers style her hair, rearrange her wigs, remove her trash, pick up and deliver food, carry shopping goods to her apartment, and fuss with items in her cabinets.

She was also accused of wearing a “revealing pink nightgown the entire time” a NYCHA employee cleaned her apartment.

NYCHA said that Johnson’s actions violated the agency’s code of conduct and that she was no longer eligible to serve as president of the tenant association.

Johnson has denied the allegations and said that she has not received the NYCHA letter.
