AFTER WHAT sources say was a tenure marked by disagreements with Mayor Nutter, Ed Covington is out as head of the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority.
Covington told staff members the news Friday morning, sources said, and he submitted his resignation to the PRA board.
Sources said that Nutter was not pleased with Covington's work performance or management and that Covington often clashed with the administration.
When asked if Covington had been pressured to resign, mayoral spokesman Mark McDonald said. "I'm not addressing any personnel matter."
