COUNCILMEMBER, WARD .3
OFFICE: (202) 724-8062
Mayor Anthony A. Williams
Dear Mayor Williams:'
In response to my question earlier today at a Council budget hearing, City Administrator John Koskinen said that Fire Chief Ronnie Few is included in the ongoing investigation of alleged resume fraud within the upper management of the Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services. The resume you forwarded to the Council nearly two years ago; accompanying Chief Few's confirmation resolution, includes at least two errors of fact pertaining to his education and an award from the firefighters' union.
I write to ask that you either clear the air on this matter immediately, or replace Chief Few. The persistent rumors and press ions regarding Chief Few and his top managers have had and continue to have a damaging impact on morale within a critical public safety agency. The investigation of resume fraud has been underway for nearly a month, far longer than such a review should take. To leave such matters in limbo for weeks on end is :damaging to everyone in the District government, and has a chilling effect on District efforts to recruit good managers. Your leadership is required to resolve these matters.
