Fenty Versus Gray Thoughts of the Day

Are you still undecided between Adrian Fenty and Vincent Gray? Between now and the election we'll present occasional Fenty versus Gray thoughts to help you decide whom to vote for to be the next Mayor of the District of Columbia. These quotations come from various sources, including Twitter, neighborhood listservs, endorsements, articles, and the campaigns themselves. As with all political pronouncements, how you evaluate these statements is up to you. You're welcome to add your thoughts in the comments section below. And if you're still uncertain, use our ultimate Fenty-Gray Decider.

For Gray:

The leadership and character that Vince has shown throughout his entire life is exactly what we need in the mayor’s office for the next four years. School reform efforts are stalling. To continue with the effort that he started, Vince will provide leadership from the mayor’s office to win broad buy-in from all stakeholders: teachers, students, parents, administrators and community partners. That is the key to successful school reform. --Lane Hudson in The Washington Blade

It could be argued that if Mayor Adrian Fenty were spreading the bounty of his leadership, in education and community development, throughout the city, he would lead Vincent Gray in wards outside Wards 2 and 3. --Neighborhood listserv

For Fenty:

proudly just voted absentee for Adrian Fenty; @fenty2010 4 more years of progress and change for the nation's capital!!! --Twitter

Washington D.C. needs Adrian Fenty for four more years. They shouldn't run the risk of stopping all the progress that's been made. That's why I am thrilled to be able to come here an endorse Mayor Fenty today. All the big cities are in this together. We all help each other, we all copy each other. We all teach each other. We have a lot to learn from Washington D.C. and one of the things I've always liked about Mayor Fenty is he's never had any problems in learning what works and what doesn't elsewhere and bringing it right here. --New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg
