Muriel Bowser‘s cabinet got a little shake-up last week when acting Chief Technology Officer Tegene Baharu resigned just days before his confirmation hearing.
Baharu, the former deputy chief technology officer at the Office of the Chief Technology Officer, was set to go before the D.C. Council’s Committee of the Whole on Wednesday. It’s not clear to LL what prompted Baharu’s resignation. Baharu, appointed by Bowser in March, didn’t respond to LL’s request for comment.
Asked about Baharu’s departure, Bowser spokesman Michael Czin thanked him for his work in the government.
