DC mayor demands employees stand up when she enters the room

Being mayor of Washington, D.C. makes you a very, very important person.  After all, you are following in the footsteps of giants like Marion Barry.  So it is completely understandable that the current mayor, Muriel Bowser, would demand that employees of the Office of Community Affairs stand up when she enters the room.

Staff members in the office were ordered to stand up and greet Bowser when she entered the room for a meeting, according to an email obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation via the D.C. government’s Freedom of Information Act online reading room.

In the email dated Feb. 5, Bowser’s director of community affairs, Charon P.W. Hines directs Bernedia Long, an employee of the agency, to make sure all staff members stood up when they saw Bowser.

“Please send a message to all the staff in the [Mayor’s Office of Community Affairs] suite letting them know when the Mayor enters the MOCA suite, all of us must stand to greet her. Thank you,” she wrote.
