fenty on the point

Direct from Mayor Fenty (is there a nickname I could be using here to the same effect as Mayor Bowtie?)

He has gotten a lot of flack for his decision to offer up Poplar Point to a competitive Request For Proposals (RFP), but that does not mean that he is anti-affordable housing, anti-development or anti-soccer stadium. We have been waiting years for major development East of the River, and this is a good way to ensure that what we get is something we can all be proud of.

Hi-- I mean no disrespect, as I am just curious. Are you a long-time resident or a (relatively) recent newcomer to the area? Either way, this is a very interesting blog that I look forward to reading more in the future.
