One Week Left Til Election Day

There’s just a week left until nuclear war election day in DC, and the final words from the local papers are in. The Post is endorsing Adrian Fenty, and so did the Examiner, while The Times is endorsing Marie Johns. Linda Cropp has yet to receive a major media endorsement. With just a week to go before the polls open, what are your thoughts on this latest election cycle? Will we see Adrian Fenty or Linda Cropp take the oath of office? Will it be outrunner Marie Johns in a surprise victory? Will Marion Barry win a crazy write-in campaign?

What say you?

    SHOCKING EDITORIAL(see below) in the Washington Times Today….The Fenty can’t send his kids to the best public schools in the city, yet he preaches better public education for all….all that is except his own kids. Adrian Fenty just lost my vote!!!

    I understand that many DC public schools are so shameful that many affluent and even middle class families choose to send their kids to private schools, but the schools in the area where Fenty lives are the best in DC. What type of statement does that make….

    To many parents with less expendable income, sending kids to private schools is not an option. I think that these parents want their kids to get a good education as much as Mr. Fenty, but unfortunately they will have to settle for mediocre. And , Mr. Fenty and his wife are publicly insulting the intelligence of families in they think that these kids do not deserve better.

    I think our public leaders should set the example for other families….we will never have a better shoool system if the attitude is…rich kids can buy the best, poor kids will just have to settle for leftovers.

    Fenty’s words vs. his actions
