Greetings All:

Call it a farewell stroll.
Effie Barry said it best, "Power is a very seductive mistress." When power dwindles they always return to the source whence that power cometh: the everyday folk.

I'm embarrassed, very disappointed and calling for his resignation too. His integrity it far gone!

Well maybe as a new resident you need to return to PG.

If Mayor Grey resigns and Marion Barry were to succeed him, Barry will stoll to the same merchants asking them to offer crack pipes in more colors!

I understand your frustration Ms. Alexander. We all banked on his very own words, " I've got character, integrity, and leadership." Unfortunately, he failed!

650K unregulated and unreported is gross incompetence and fraudulent for a seasoned DC politician with demonstrated character, integrity and leadership.

Moreover, ref. the PG comment, many more critical thinker are relocating/purchasing in Southeast unannounced and demanding the end to the corrupt business as usual methodology. We all must work together to improve OUR community.
