DCPS Says It Drafted General Independently
DCPS says it moved on its own to hire former Brigadier Gen. Anthony J. Tata for its newly created chief operating officer's post. The Wire, citing a knowledgeable source, reported yesterday that Tata's selection came with the assistance of Terence Golden, chairman of the influential Federal City Council.
Jennifer Calloway, a spokeswoman for Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, said this morning that Golden "did not have anything to do with hiring Tata." Golden has not returned a phone message.
Another more nuanced exchange with our source, familiar with the workings of the Federal City Council, suggests that we might have misunderstood him. He said today that "Terry and others helped by proposing names" but that he could not be certain that Tata was among them.
