D.C. Technology Chief in Denver All Week

DENVER -- Michelle Rhee wasn't the only Fenty Administration official to be trotted out to the Democratic National Convention this week. Vivek Kundra, the D.C. government's chief technology officer, is here, too. Kundra tells D.C. Wire that he's speaking on two panels, including one with Google, which has partnered with the District on a few Web intiatives.

Kundra said he took personal leave time to attend the convention, and he said he is working from his hotel room this week to monitor any potential technology problems related to the opening of schools. "We have a war room set up here," he said. "If I can't use technology to keep in touch, that would be a problem."

Kundra has other high-profile connections here: He served as assistant secretary of commerce and technology for Virginia under Gov. Tim Kaine (D).

No offense, but who is Jonathan R. Rees, Sr.? Isn't Michelle Fenty at the convention with her husband?

Jonathan R. Rees is a failed candidate for city council who posts repeatedly on this blog and several other blogs. He has been banned from various listserves for creating multiple posting user names. He does the same thing on this site, posting the same sort of comments under various user names.

Michelle Fenty is not at the convention but staying this week at a relative's home in Annapolis.

I only post under my own name and any claim otherwise is a lie created by those I have exposed as wrong doers!

When America is confronted with elected leaders like Gov. James McGreevy of New Jersey who was having an extra martial affair with a man; Gov. Elliot Spitzer of New York who was having an extra martial affair with a prostitute; Sen. John Edwards who was having an extra marital affair while his wife was battling cancer and DC Mayor Adrian Fenty who is having an extra marital affair with a long list of men and then we add that to all the other elected officials doing the same --- when is America going to say enough?

IP addresses don't lie, Mr. Rees.

Vivek Kundra is an all-around great guy and quite a mini politician himself.

User Admin did it ever occur to you that there are many people in my office posting over the same network or are you that stupid?
