Bloomberg and Fenty: A lot in Common
(Washington Post) — The Big City Mayors Club held a summit meeting Tuesday.
New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, amid a kingmaking endorsement tour, rolled into town to offer his imprimatur to fellow mayor-cum-municipal-CEO Adrian M. Fenty.
Fenty basked in the approval of a politico he’s sought to emulate from his earliest days. This is the guy who packed an Acela train car full of city officials and toted them up to New York in 2006 to show them what Big City Mayors do, the guy who tore walls out of a Wilson Building office suite to re-create Bloomberg’s “bullpen.”
