Andy Shallal as a mayoral candidate in 2014 at the Washington City Paper mayoral forum at Black Cat in Washington, D.C.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently appointed Andy Shallal, the politically-minded owner of local eatery Busboys and Poets, to chair the city’s Workforce Investment Council. The council is charged with overseeing the city’s job training programs, and the appointment comes after a nearly-year-long vacancy, when millions of federal dollars meant to help the unemployed went uncollected. We speak with Shallal about his goals for the group and how he thinks the city can best prepare local workers for employment.
