Councilwoman Tish James of Brooklyn, seen here with Leroy Comrie, had the distinction of being one of the last City Council members not to chair a committee.

Just now, Christine Quinn officially announced that James will head the Council’s Contracts Committee. The committee is charged with looking at the city’s procurement agreements.
