Ondray Harris, former executive director of the Public Employee Relations Board of the District of Columbia claims two board members, Don Wasserman and Ann Hoffman, ordered Mr. Harris to stop hiring anyone suspected of having conservative political affiliations. It went one step further when they told him to stop hiring Whites.
When he was given the orders he said, “That’s the angriest I’ve ever been in my life. I actually slammed my hand down on the table…stood up and got ready to walk out of the room,” he said.
Mr. Harris resigned his position in May of this year. He is coming forward so these practices can be investigated. He said many other employees at PERB feel the same as he does and he is doing it for them. His ultimate goal he said is to protect the employees still there.
An outside independent investigator will look into the allegations.
Mr. Harris appears to be a man of great integrity.
