Natwar M. Gandhi will be nominated by Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) for another five-year term as the District’s chief financial officer as soon as today. The decision comes shockingly late in Gandhi’s current term, which expires at month’s end, and after a tumultuous five years which has included the $48 million Harriette Walters theft and three years of lottery wrangling. But the savings account is flush, the bond ratings are good, and Gandhi’s many friends in D.C. business and politics, on Wall Street and on Capitol Hill will be mighty pleased — meaning one less thing for Gray to worry about.
