Mayor and City Council
Washington City Paper: Washington Teachers Union head asks council to ‘censure’ mayor “In a letter sent yesterday afternoon to David Grosso, chair of the D.C. Council Committee on Education, the head of the Washington Teacher’s Union is crying foul on the process by which Mayor Muriel Bowser chose the District’s new schools chief Antwan Wilson, whom she introduced at a hastily convened press conference on Nov. 22—less than an hour after she informed a statutory review panel of her selection. In her letter, WTU President Elizabeth Davis asks the Council to ‘censure’ Bowser for flouting the law and the panel by making a public announcement before the panel reviewed the chancellor selection.”
