Bill de Blasio will be unveiling “important” new appointments in the near future, but don’t expect his schools chancellor pick to be among them
Asked today about his decision-making process for the chancellor pick, the mayor-elect described it as deliberate and methodical and said new candidates are still being nominated even as his January 1 inauguration looms a few weeks away.

I think, you know, by the end of this week we’ll have some important additional announcements, but it will not necessarily be that one.”
