Virginia officials sparse at Gray's mayoral inauguration
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) received an invitation to the festivities but he declined to attend and did not send anyone in his place, according to his office.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) attended, as did David Agnew, President Obama's director of intergovernmental affairs, and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who administered the oath of office to D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown.
To be fair, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty did not attend McDonnell's inauguration in January 2010. (O'Malley was there).
McDonnell and Gray have spoken, though. They have already issued a joint statement, along with O'Malley, on Metro governance.
