Fenty Files for 2010 Reelection Bid

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty filed paperwork on Friday with the Office of Campaign Finance for Fenty 2010, his reelection campaign committee.

Fenty's operative, John Falcicchio, emailed a two-paragraph announcement about Fenty's plans early this morning.

The statement noted that Fenty's filing occurs as he approaches his administration's midpoint and is about the same time that Fenty began his mayoral efforts four years ago.

Fenty's statement delivered via Falcicchio:

"The time has come to engage the residents of the District of Columbia about the future of the city and the leadership that will represent them moving forward," Fenty began. "We are proud of the progress we've made over the past 22 months, whether its beginning the critical reform of DCPS or bringing more development into our great neighborhoods. We cannot rest on the improvement we've fostered thus far and will continue to work with all residents to make the District a world class city."

No bells, no whistles, just business.

Why would anybody want the same from him again?
I hope that we have a bettewr choice this time, because he has really disppointed a lot of people.

Thanks but no thanks. Hopefully he will think he is running unopposed so he won't subject us to two years of campaigning. If he spent more time making the government work for the people, he wouldn't have to spend so much time campaigning. His next job should be a campaign manager since he's so good at it and obviously likes that part of politics.

Mayor Adrian Malik Fenty fooled everyone with his phony populism and everyone thought he was Mr. Nice Guy, man of the people. I knew he was a disaster, when in the first debate at UDC he was unable to name the three credit rating agencies! Let's get with it people, when are we as voters going to start electing politicians for their intellectual capabilities and not because they make us feel good? Good on all of you DC residents who voted for Mr. Clean, now the city will once again go down the drain under his leadership...I TOLD YOU SO!!!

Mayor Fenty nominated Sean Gough to the Board of Trustees at UDC. This nomination is a joke! Sean Gough doesn't have the experience or educational background to be on the Board of Trustees at UDC. As a D.C. resident and voter, I have lost all respect for Adrian M. Fenty. Mayor Fenty should step down from being the mayor of the District of Columbia. There's too much nepotism and cronyism in Fenty's administration. At the rate Fenty is going, he will end up like former Detroit Hip Hop Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Accomplishments over the past 22 months:
giving away money in the stadium deal,
over $30 million in the summer youth job program,
no contract for teachers, leading to an impasse,
being ordered to reinstate the fired social workers but not doing so, thinking instead that the judge's order was a "suggestion,"
firing countless people for no reason on a whim,
four dead children with no change to the agency he blamed,
a police chief who can't control crime,
closing a homeless shelter with no plan in place,
phone lines removed from city administrative offices so dropped cell calls can be the reason people don't get services,
plagarized school plan from another juristiction,
a man died because bureaucratic tape prevented him from being helped,

Need I list more?

If at first you don't suceed!? No one can get a good hand on the office of the DC Mayor in a mere 4 years (ask Sharon Pratt). Sure, Fenty disappointed a lot of people, and pissed off even more. But hey, he did win every precient. So we pretty much got what we thought we asked for. The good news is that in his next administration, there will be no surprises. The schools will be opearting at 100 percent (Quan Lee) will see to that. That summer jobs thing will have been resolved (Fenty's brilliant appointment to the Dept. of Employment Services will see to that). Most of the money from the Office of Tax and Revenue will have been recovered (Natwar and Peter are on that). Most importantly, the Nationals will start paying their damn rent! Most educated people and Marion Barry, would agree that one requires a minimum of 8 and up to 20 years to effectively govern the District of Columbia.

Sure, he carried every precinct, but I wonder how the non-voting 70% would have cast their ballot? People need to wake up and realize that in DC, historically, a small percentage has been making the decision about whose policies will affect ALL of us. As a Ward4 resident, I made an informed choice and didn't vote for him. Hopefully voter turnout in 2010 will be a lot different than it was in 2006.

If not Fenty, Who?

Do not be fooled, I'm a DC resident now. WaPo won't change the ID.
