Mayor Vincent C. Gray, who has to fill eight seats on the 15-member University of the District of Columbia board, is expected to begin filling those vacancies Friday — a move that could redirect the spotlight off university system president Allen Sessoms, who is under fire for questionable travel expenses.
D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray proposed $76 million in new public school spending for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, but future budget cuts are still in the picture.
UDC President Allen Sessoms is in the proverbial hot seat. Students are calling for his ouster, news reports say he spends exorbitant sums on his travels, and D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown is demanding straight answers on spending questions.
"My preference is to let the trustees govern," he has said.
And UDC President Allen Sessoms, who is scheduled Tuesday to explain the university's expenditures, including his travel costs, said his school needs a budget boost, too.
