I was having a discussion with a friend and somehow the question came up, "who would win in a rematch, Gray or Fenty?" I must say I was one of the voters that helped oust Fenty in the 2010 election, however I think if he ran again I might consider giving him another chance. Of course this is assuming my choices were Fenty and Gray.
Let me say I don't have anything against Gray. I think he's doing a decent job, but he's not the best we've every had. Personally, one of the reasons I didn't vote for Fenty was because I think he forgot which side his bread was buttered on. I'm sure when you get in office its a whole other lever of "politicking" however you must not forget where you votes come from. Before he was Mayor, Fenty was always in the neighborhoods and I think he got so caught up in the upper-level management of running the city that he neglected the people that put him in the position.
According to other news outlets, thus far Fenty has been mum about a possible rematch in 2014. I think Fenty still has many supporters and unless Gray steps it up big time, if Fenty decides to throw his hat in the rings, Gray will have a tough fight on his hands.
