Atlanta Housing Authority CEO to step down

Atlanta Housing Authority CEO to step down

ATLANTA -- Renee Lewis Glover, CEO of the Atlanta Housing Authority, will leave the organization after 17 years at the helm.

According to a statement from the AHA, "the new board members appointed by Mayor Kasim Reed have made it clear that they would like to have change in leadership at the AHA, which is fully within the prerogative of the mayor and the board."

Glover and members of the board have been working "cooperatively' to come up with "mutually acceptable terms of separation and an orderly transition," the statement said.

Since Reed became Atlanta's mayor in January 2010, he began appointing board members who regularly challenged Glover's leadership and her policies in running the organization.

Before Reed was elected in November 2009, the AHA board had signed a five-year contract with Glover.
