Top Bowser Official Abruptly Exits as Ethics Probe Looms

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested an ethics review of a top aide who discussed taking a job with Howard University just months after negotiating a deal for nearly $300 million in tax breaks and public funding for a new hospital for the university.

Rashad M. Young, who abruptly vacated his post Friday as D.C. city administrator, had been in charge of running the day-to-day government operations for Bowser’s administration since 2015.

A letter Bowser sent Friday to the D.C. Board of Ethics and Government Accountability stated that Young told her on July 31 that he was in talks for a job at Howard University and sought ethics guidance, The Washington Post reported.

Bowser responded that on Aug. 4, she directed her general counsel to review the circumstances of the job offer as well as the ethics board’s opinion on the matter.

“Today, I refer the matter to your independent office to conduct a full review to ensure that all District policies and procedures were followed,” Bowser wrote.

Bowser’s office provided the letter Saturday praising Young for having a hand in “every achievement of my administration” and helping to “deliver exceptional results.”
