Meet Mr. Mayor (To Be) Tonight, Thursday, or Pick Your Date

You can't accuse Vincent Gray of presuming too much when he schedules "Town Hall" meetings in each ward to give citizens an opportunity to connect with our city's next mayor.  We all know that the Democratic primary is the de facto mayoral election in this virtual one-party state. Ward 5 is hosting the first one, set for tonight, October 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Community Academy Public Charter School, 1400 1st Street, NW. 

Ward 3, where Gray had the worst showing on election day, goes next:  Thursday, October 7, from 6:00-8:00 pm at St. Columba's Church,, 4201 Albemarle Street, NW.  Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh and some other elected officials will be joining Vincent Gray at this event.

Can't make it either of those nights?  You have six more chances -- see the list below. Have questions or comments for Mr. Gray?  You can submit them in advance using this link, or by calling 202-682-4729.
