It sounds like the Housing Authority owns 80 homes. They are an agency made of many people. Which means they need one person to represent them in the HOA. Not unlike how a LLC works. So the Agency has decided to have this person represent them. That person then got elected onto the board.

Not seeing anything wrong with this as the agency itself is a member. It can decide amongst itself whom they want to take on the responsibility of representing them. They used their 80 property holding proxies to choose this person. Simple as that. Happens all the time when a LLC, the developer, or an agency owns property. There are multiple people and 1 is chosen. Considering the 80 membership shares it's no wonder they are on the board having the most interest in the HOA.

Typically when one entity owns a unit or units, they must name one person as ther contact point. If they own multi units, they get multi votes. As to that person being allowed to be on the BOD will be in your Bylaws.

With the city owning 80 units, sounds like they are in control.

It's also worth noting that in many associations non-members are allowed on the board in any case. Ron has not specified that his bylaws or other governing docs require directors to be owners.
