The man hired by Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome to be her new chief administrative officer does not hold a master’s degree in public administration as he claimed on his résumé, according to The Advocate. A spokeswoman with the Bernard M. Baruch College of the City University of New York said Troy Bell, who resigned Friday amid the resulting controversy, never completed the requisite coursework to receive the MPA. Additionally, news reports indicate Bell was fired from a pair of state government jobs in Florida, as well as from his most recent position as deputy city manager in Walla Walla, Washington.
