Barry contract controversy leads to resignation
The fallout from Marion Barry's personal services contract controversy continues with the Rev. Anthony J. Motley stepping down as president of the JOBS Coalition and as head of its workforce development and community outreach programs.
The D.C. Wire reports that Motley was among those singled out in a report last week that found that Barry had secured earmarks for friends, including Motley.
“We accept Rev. Motley’s decision to step down at this time,” John McMahon, Coalition board president and chairman, said in a statement Wednesday. “This action and his cooperation with our internal review demonstrate his commitment to the Coalition’s ongoing work.”
