    District of Columbia mayor-elect Muriel Bowser has named two of her deputy mayors and a deputy city administrator.

    Bowser announced Monday that Kevin Donahue will serve as deputy city administrator under Rashad Young. Donahue currently works for the U.S. General Services Administration. With his District job, he will bring back CapStat, a performance management system favored by former mayor Adrian Fenty.

    Brenda Donald will be the deputy mayor for human services. She served in a similar role previously under former mayor Anthony Williams.

    As deputy mayor for education, Bowser tapped Jennifer Niles, the founder of a high-performing charter school.

    Bowser, a Democrat, could name up to three more deputy mayors: for public safety, economic development and issues east of the Anacostia River. Bowser takes office on Jan. 2.
