My endorsement: A mayor who can unite the city
By Cherita Whiting
I endorse D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray for D.C. mayor. There is no one else who can heal this city at this moment, when we all are in need of healing.
Gray is a man of the people. He will listen to us, take care of us and include all of us. My city is hurting, and we cannot take another four years of this mess.
Mayor Adrian Fenty has disrespected this city. People have been terminated without cause. People have lost their jobs and their homes, and then there are the contracts that have been given out to his friends — with my tax dollars.
Disrespect is not part of the job as mayor. Bringing the city together is. Fenty has failed.
The writer is chairman of the Ward 4 Education Council and a former chairman of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4B.
