Fenty blocks legislation on UDC board

By Washington Post editors

D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) has blocked legislation that would allow the University of the District of Columbia’s board of trustees to operate with a reduced quorum.

The move sets up a direct challenge between Fenty and his chief rival in the mayor’s race, D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D).

Currently there are only eight members on the 15-member board, and Fenty and Gray have squabbled over appointments. Gray has challenged the qualifications of Fenty’s nominees.

Check out the D.C. Wire for more details.

And, once again... "WAAAH!" cries Mayor Skippy. "I don't like the way you're playing; you don't let me win! So I'm gonna take my ball and go home. So there!"

Alas, the results of these repeated temper tantrums are much more consequential than the interruption of kids' games on a playground. The governance and functioning of the District are at stake.

We deserve to have an adult serving as our Mayor.
