Democrat Eva Moskowitz says she won’t be President Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education, reports the New York Post.

The CEO and founder of Success Academy Charter Schools – New York City’s largest charter school network – said Thursday at City Hall in New York that she is not interested in moving to Washington, D.C., but will work with the president-elect and his eventual education secretary.

Moskowitz, whose name appeared on media short lists of potential candidates for the position, said she will remain in New York to “keep an eye on Mayor de Blasio.”

The Post reported in August that Moskowitz – who served as the City Council’s education committee chairman – announced she is considering running against de Blasio in 2017.
