Battle lines forming over wards 4 and 7
Fenty, who has been spotted door-knocking in Ward 7 the past few months, is making plans to deliver his state of the District address Friday morning in Deanwood, according to the buzz among community leaders.
That's Gray territory.
Gray, who has lived in Hillcrest for years, rose from heading Ward 7 Democrats to the Ward 7 council seat in 2004 by toppling Kevin Chavous, Fenty's former boss. He then ran and won for chairman in 2006 at the urging of Ward 7 activists.
On Saturday, Fenty will officially open his campaign headquarters in Ward 4, where he lives and served as council member for six years before he became mayor in 2007.
Losing Ward 4, where he built his reputation for constituent services, would be devastating.
