Lorraine Green is at the center of a controversy involving former mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown. He says Green and other Gray campaign officials gave him cash and promised him a city job in exchange for repeated attacks on former Mayor Adrian Fenty. Green has denied Brown's claims, which have led to multiple investigations.

Gray said he was withdrawing Green's nomination at her request. The mayor says Green has decided to re-establish a business venture she put on hold several years ago.

Green recently retired as an Amtrak executive.
