Today Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the appointment of Nisha Agarwal as commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, Lorraine Grillo as President of the School Construction Authority and Steve Banks as commissioner of the Human Resources Administration. de Blasio noted that he and Banks ran against each other for city council in 2001, when de Blasio was first elected.
de Blasio fielded several questions on the reversal yesterday of three Success Academy charter school co-locations. (He also answered questions on this topic at a press conference yesterday.)
