Fenty Picks Santos for Deputy Mayor

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty named Valerie Santos deputy mayor today.

Santos replaces Neil O. Albert, who officially took his post as city administrator this past weekend. Santos, 36 and a native of San Francisco, was Albert's chief operating officer.
She called Albert her "mentor" at a news conference about her appointment at the construction site of the new Walker Jones School in Northwest.

She vowed to build on the accomplishments of the deputy mayor's office and said she would also focus on development east of the Anacostia River.

Before joining the deputy mayor's office about two years ago, she was a vice president at Jones Lang LaSalle.
