DC Deputy Mayor Hands in Resignation Amid Legal Trouble

(ConservativeHub.com) – A man hit another vehicle with his car door in a parking lot outside a Gold’s Gym. The seemingly innocuous incident marked the beginning of the end for DC Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice Christopher Geldart. Instead of resolving the issue peacefully, he allegedly assaulted the other driver, leading to criminal charges. On October 12, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Geldart’s resignation.

On October 6, officials charged Geldart with assault for the Gold’s Gym parking lot incident, during which the deputy mayor is accused of grabbed the other man by the neck. Due to the criminal proceedings against him, the city placed him on leave. Mayor Bowser initially wrote the situation off as a minor incident that could happen to anyone. Yet, about a week later, she announced he was stepping down.

Bowser appointed Geldart, a former Marine, to the position in 2021. His qualifications included a strong background in emergency management and previous experience as the Director of the Department of Public Works, the Operational Lead for the COVID-19 pandemic response, and the Director of the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. He also served in the federal government in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and for the State of Maryland.

Geldart has not gone to court for the charges yet. City Administrator Kevin Donahue, who previously held the position of Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice, is taking his place for the time being.
