WashPost: Preservationists Want Fenty Adviser Off Case

“The D.C. Preservation League is demanding that a senior adviser to Fenty (D) disqualify herself from ruling on the Third Church of Christ, Scientist’s appeal to raze its building at 16th and I streets NW,” the Post reported yesterday. “The preservationists contend that Harriet Tregoning, the District planning director who began presiding over the case yesterday, cannot rule impartially because her boss, Deputy Mayor Neil Albert, has already backed demolition.”
