Three Assisting Mayor's DCPL Task Force Among Those Allegedly Fired

Wow. Compare this sentence from "The Mayor's Task Force on the Future of the District of Columbia Public Library System: Summary of Findings and Draft Report, November 2005":
Similarly, the following members of the staff of the District of Columbia Public Library provided assistance to the Task Force: Gail Avery, Se'an Crumley, Rose Dawson, Bette Ann Hubbard, Monica Lewis, Jewel Ogonji, Pat Pasqual, Rita Thompson-Joyner and Barbara Webb.

With this from last week's Post:
According to the sources, those dismissed were Jewel Ogonji, head librarian; Angela Purnell, assistant library director for administrative and operational services; Yema Tucker, head of collection development and management; Se'an Crumley, head of information and technology systems; and Barbara Webb, head of neighborhood library services....A blue-ribbon task force appointed by Mayor Anthony A. Williams (D) is expected to release a report in about two weeks, [John W.] Hill, [president of the library Board of Trustees,] said. The task force did not recommend the terminations, Hill said.

No, I imagine those assisting the Task Force wouldn't suggest their own terminations.


  1. Perhaps by assisting the task force, they were able to demonstrate how incompetent they are!


  2. How awful/ironic would that be? The lesson I've learned here is to never participate in one at my job! Your chances are better as the co-boss :)
