District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray has struggled with yet another issue with the residency of a potential nominee in his administration.

The mayor announced September 21 that he would place Robert L. Mallett on the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, effectively running the three-member panel. This news did not go over well with community activist and noted city government watchdog Dorothy Brizill. She raised questions about Mallett’s residency, since he recently moved from New York.

Two days later, the mayor withdrew Mallett’s nomination ahead of potential scrutiny from the city council, the media, and other observers. D.C. government has a strict rule that requires the mayor’s nominees to also be District residents for at least three consecutive years prior to assuming their position. Mallett moved to the District from New York City in 2010.

Mayor Gray’s spokeswoman had some brief words about the turn of events with Mallett.

“[Gray] is very disappointed that he is unable to send the nomination,” said Linda Wharton-Boyd, according to The Washington Post.
