Philadelphia’s new managing director, Camille Cates Barnett, is expected to begin work after mourning the death of her husband, though city officials are not clear on when her start date will be.

Barnett’s husband, James Barnett, died in a car crash early this month as he traveled to Philadelphia from Washington, D.C. Barnett was tending to her husband’s wake on Jan. 7 and did not attend Mayor Michael Nutter’s inauguration and swearing-in ceremony. Nutter and top members of his administration attended the funeral, which was held the next day.
