Gray has the floor all to himself at forum

D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray said Monday night that if he definitely intended to fire schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee after becoming mayor, he "would say so." The remark came at a campaign forum in which Democratic mayoral primary challenger Gray was to debate incumbent Adrian M. Fenty. But Fenty did not attend. A chair that was intended for the mayor was occupied by Kate Blosveren, president of the D.C. chapter of Young Education Professionals, which organized the session. From that perch, she asked Gray questions.

My understanding is that while Gray was honoring his commitment to speak at the debate, our mayor decided it was more important to canvass the neighborhood in Ward 5...shameful...

It amazes me that people want to report what they "heard" "assumed" or otherwise gossip about without being informed.
This election has beyond amazed me in that area.

Why don't you get a camera and follow the Mayor around? Why don't you check where he was last night????

it might be helpful.

Because I support Gray, a friend who received a knock on the door from Fenty and his "volunteers" called to inform us he was knocking on doors in the neighborhood (Ward 5). The Fenty campaign refuses to comment on where he was and no pictures were taken so I'm sorry if there is no evidence to prove it but I thought it was important to share. If you want to believe that it is gossip, then do so.
