Yesterday Mayor Williams did something rarely done: he actually fired someone who was bad at their job. Yesterday, Taxicab Commission Chair Lee Williams was unceremoniously thrown from the ratty driver’s seat of the Taxicab Commission, charged with incompetence and mismanagement. As anyone who’s ever attempted to get a cab in DC may tell you, “It’s about damn time.”
Sure, he stopped cheating on the licensing exam, but only by stopping the exam, entirely. Sure, he’s saved hundred in cab fares for the citizens of DC, but only by failing to order the stickers associated with the spring fare hike. Yep, this is one employee DC surely won’t miss.
