Cheh Wants Subpoena Powers In Probe Of Gray Hiring Practices

Play associated audio

Cheh is holding a hearing next week to look into some of the personnel scandals that plagued the new Gray administration, including charges of nepotism, the steep salary increases for some officials, and the hiring of Sulaimon Brown, the former mayoral candidate who alleges he was paid off and promised a job by the Gray campaign for his help during the race.

Cheh says so far, she has received the full cooperation of the mayor's office.

But she says she wants to call witnesses who are not employed by the city government and may be unwilling to voluntarily testify.

That list of potential witnesses includes Brown and Gerri Mason Hall, Gray's former chief of staff, who was actually going to testify before Cheh about these issues but was asked to resign by Gray right before her testimony.
