Mayor Ed Lee’s  Housing Director Doug Shoemaker received his ethics waiver Tuesday from the Ethics Commission in a 4-1 vote.

He will now step down from his city job post and become president of an affordable housing developer he signed city contracts for within the past 12 months.

No word yet on how Lee will appoint to this post.

The housing director plays an important role in The City’s funding of affordable housing and is also the overseer of the ambitious plan to rebuild the troubled public housing sites.
