Fenty Team Wants Your Green Space

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty needs your address.

The Fenty camp, known as the "green team," is dialing up supporters to place green and white campaign signs in their yards.

It appears to be a quiet, year-out kickoff of Fenty's reelection campaign. The 38-year-old mayor has built up a war chest. He now appears to be going back into the mode of the door-knocking candidate that set a precedent by winning every precinct in the 2006 Democratic primary.

The primary is Sept. 14, 2010. So far, no formidable candidate has stepped up to face him.

Hell to the no! Not in my yard or the yards of any of my family. I won't even sign a petition to get his name on the ballot.

I saw a Fenty sign in a nearby yard last night.

I admit, my first impulse was to snatch it. But good citizen that I am, I grudgingly left it there. I will be prowling, though, for additional signs and if they proliferate, I vow to knock on the doors of sign holders to simultaneously try to understand and try to discourage their support.

CALLING ALL FORMIDABLE CANDIDATES . . . STEP UP, STEP UP!!! You'll most likely be a shoo-in!

Please, no calls!

Don't even bother to knock on the door. Trained guard dogs surround the place and they attack anything green or white.

Why is this newsworthy? It reads as a press release from the Fenty campaign, or an advertisement. Why post this?

Very funny efavorite lol...

But by all means, I would LOVE to get a phone call at my house - the caller would not like what I have to say and the thought of ruining my yard (and reputation) w/a Fenty sign - will NOT happen. EVER

My 87 year old uncle and a resident of Ward 2 received 5 calls regarding the use of his "green space". This is sad! His answer "NO" each time.

We better be cafeful or Fenty will cover every playground, football field and park in the city with his signs if he cannot fool enough city residents to put his signs in their yards. Don't forget, DC PARKS AND RECREATION IS IN HIS POCKET.

If Fenty signs start popping up in public parks, I definitely WILL leap in to snatch them - in broad daylight.

efavorite - lets created some neon "anyone but" signs and tack them on top of the Fenty signs... the ones in the park - dont want to get in trouble on someone's property lol.

WE might want to say yes, get the signs in our yards and then write anybody but Fenty in orange neon. What a visual of having that on private properties all across town?
