Gray campaign announces town hall meetings

Vincent Gray, the presumptive mayor-elect, has scheduled a promised series of eight town hall meetings -- one in each city ward -- leading up to the Nov. 2 general election.

A press release says that Gray, who ran on a platform of uniting the city, will host the two-hour meetings alongside each area's council members and advisory neighborhood commissioners in order "to hear directly from residents about their concerns about District Government and the ways in which they'd like city government to serve them best."

Gray spokeswoman Traci Hughes says the meetings are part of a "listening tour" aimed in no small part at easing the minds of Mayor Adrian Fenty's supporters. "Chairman Gray is the first to acknowledge that there's a lot of Fenty supporters out there," Hughes said. "We've all got a lot of work to do to win over their support."
