Gray Wants His Tickets; Says Fenty Took Them
One month after Opening Day, Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) is renewing his hunt for those missing baseball tickets.
Gray sent Mayor Adrian M. Fenty a letter yesterday asking him to turn over the Council's allotment of tickets.
"You have 67 tickets for your use. The Council has just 19 tickets that are then divided among 13 members," Gray wrote. "Our constituents look forward to the an opportunity to attend games, and many members also give them to non-profits...We look forward to you putting an end to this unnecessary distraction."
Fenty has never publicly admitted he has the Council's tickets, but has said he and his staff would look into the matter.
Gray says the searching has gone on long enough.
"It has now been one month since the Nationals home-opener," Gray wrote. "You have never communicated to us explaining why you chose to take the tickets and then keep them."
Meanwhile, Council member Kwame Brown (D-At large) said today he plans to move ahead with his proposal to auction off both the mayor's and the Council's tickets to raise money for other city services.
