This year we instituted the first standardized tests for city politicians. As with public school standardized testing, we only give the results and not the standards used to reach them, but we can definitively report that Phil Mendelsohn was the only city council member to come out with a positive score, albeit a not too impressive 5 points. All the rest of the council members had negative scores ranging between minus 4 and minus 8.

The worst city official is Adrian Fenty with a standardized test score of minus 49. Michelle Rhee is second worst with minus 25 points followed by Kathy Lanier with minus 20.

As a result of the poor test scores, consideration will be given next year to closing the Wilson Building and turning it over to a charter government or selling it to developers.
