San Francisco Housing Authority chief heads for door

Henry Alvarez, the embattled executive director of the San Francisco Housing Authority, asked for a leave of absence Friday and indicated that he will not renew his contract, which expires this summer.  Alvarez’s announcement came amid mounting questions about his leadership and nearly two months after The Chronicle first revealed that he faced three lawsuits from employees accusing him of discrimination and retaliation. Alvarez is also contending with increasing tenant frustrations about unresolved maintenance problems, a highly unfavorable review recently by inspectors with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and allegations that he steered two contracts to favored bidders.
