Hunt III, Boston’s first environmental chief, who is leaving to pursue work outside of government. In a separate development, another member of Menino’s cabinet is also expected to leave. Evelyn Friedman, Boston’s chief of housing, is expected to receive a job with the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council.
