Fenty’s Future Remains Uncertain
(Afro) — The dismantling of Mayor Adrian Fenty’s administration, prompted by his 53-46 percent loss to City Council Chairman Vincent Gray in September’s Democratic mayoral primary, is continuing apace. Gray named the team that would facilitate his transition to the city’s helm late last week. And in recent days, hundreds of Fenty hires were given their walking papers in the form of letters from the Department of Human Resources, telling them how to resign from their jobs. Now many are wondering about the future of the political wunderkind, who in 2006 became the youngest mayor in the city’s 40 years of home rule. While no answers are immediately forthcoming, according to a close supporter, Fenty will continue to do what’s in the best interest of the District’s children.
