Mayor shuffles staff

(Published April 19, 1999)

D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams appointed four new members to his administration this month, filling some of the many vacancies that continue to haunt the young administration.

Charles C. Maddox was named interim inspector general April 14. He replaces E. Barrett Prettyman Jr. who stepped down after 15 months as the chief investigator of fraud, waste and abuse in city government.

Maddox was Prettyman’s general counsel and principal legal advisor.

Judy Banks was named interim director of the D.C. Office of Personnel. She replaces Millicent Few, who retired. Banks has worked in various city agencies for the past 24 years and served as Williams’ chief of staff when he was the city’s chief financial officer.

The mayor named Ron Magnus deputy director for metropolitan, regional and national affairs in the Office of Intergovernmental Re-lations.

Magnus, an attorney, served as the Ward 5 coordinator in Williams’ mayoral campaign.

The mayor named Abdusalam Omer as his new chief of staff April 8, following the ouster of Reba Pittman Evans from the position a day earlier. Omer previously served as deputy chief financial officer for budget and planning.
