Charles Maddox’s resignation letter Mayor Anthony Williams’s press release

Office of Councilmember Vincent B. Orange, Sr. (Ward - 5)

Councilmember Orange Wishes Charles Maddox Well As He Resigns From His Position as the Inspector General of the District of Columbia

For Immediate Release: 
Friday, September 12, 2003
Contact: Estell Lloyd
(202) 724-8028

September 12, 2003-Councilmember Orange wished Charles Maddox the best of luck in his future endeavors, upon hearing that today, Charles Maddox, the Inspector General of the District of Columbia, tendered his resignation to Mayor Anthony A. Williams effective December 31, 2003.

Councilmember Orange stated, "This is a golden opportunity for the District of Columbia's legislative and executive branch to seek a candidate that meets the new qualifications in D.C. Law 15-26, the 'Inspector General Qualifications Amendment Act of 2003.'" D.C. Law 15-26 became effective as the law of the District on June 3, 2003. In September, D.C. Superior Court ruled that the qualifications established by the Council for holding the office of Inspector General are applicable to the next candidate for the office. With Mr. Maddox's resignation, the Mayor must now hire a new Inspector General who fulfills the requirements of D.C. Law 15-26.

The new Inspector General must also comply with D.C. Law 14-185, "The Excepted and Executive Service Domicile Requirement Amendment Act of 2002," effective October 1, 2002, which requires that members of the Excepted and Executive Service reside in the District.

Thus, the next Inspector General of the District of Columbia will be domiciled in the District and either a graduate of an accredited law school and member of the District of Columbia Bar with a minimum of seven years of experience, or a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with at least seven years of experience. Councilmember Orange stated, "this resignation provides the opportunity for the District Government to have an excellent administrative team in the executive branch. Robert Bobb, the Mayor's candidate for City Administrator, is one of the top city administrators in the United States and the addition of a top-notch Inspector General that fulfills the qualifications established by the Council in D.C. Law 15-26, will be a win/win for the citizens of the District of Columbia."
