Fenty Kicks Off Campaign

Fenty Rally - 9/10
I attended the kick-off rally today of Adrian Fenty, a council member in D.C. running for mayor. He’s in a crowded field that includes the current mayor, Council president Linda Cropp, and a number of others. I’m not going to pick favorites, but I like Fenty’s message. His campaign is also very well organized – they had Fenty visors, Fenty water bottles, even green “Fenty for Mayor” rubber bracelets. I wonder how long the campaign blog will be “coming soon” …

His message had basically two components: the first is a skepticism towards the stadium financing deal the mayor negotiated, and the second is a promise to spend more on public education in the District.
