Last quote by Muriel Bowser

Well, actually. I am deeply sorry that we have to – that there's any doubt about the decisions that were made by any member of my team. You ask me, did he do anything wrong?' Well, he asked, it appears, or contacted the chancellor, it appears, with some questions about the school where he was matched, so if he can't have any contact with the chancellor, perhaps, that was a piece, a question, he could ask to the ethics board – 'hey, I'm a parent, I'm going to be a DCPS parent, but I have some additional questions' – all of, any public official would benefit from that.feedback

There are numerous topics with which Muriel Bowser is associated, including District and Columbia. Most recently, Muriel Bowser has been quoted saying: “The promise was for families to have a quality school to choose what they wanted. It wasn't to direct them to their neighborhood school.
