Board of Zoning Adjustment chairwoman Meridith Moldenhauer‘s term expired a few months ago, and Mayor Vince Gray just came up with a replacement, according to a source [UPDATE: And confirmed by the Office on Boards and Commissions]: Rashida MacMurray, currently a manager at Deloitte and most recently an associate attorney at the local real estate law powerhouse Holland & Knight. According to a 2010 profile in DiversityInc magazine, she “provides construction advisory services to federal government agencies in Washington D.C.,” and is president of the company’s Black Employee Network in the region.
Do you care? Probably not. MacMurray’s not Lloyd Jordan notable (or at least doesn’t seem to be). But BZA members do decide whether or not strip clubs get built in your neighborhood, not to mention whether you can build an addition on your house, so it’s important to see how she turns out.
