Former D.C. Mayor Fenty To Join Law Firm

 

Former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has a new gig.

Fenty, who served as Mayor for one term before being defeated by Vincent Gray this past fall, is joining the plaintiffs’ trial and litigation firm, Klores Perry Mitchell, P.C. (KPM) as special counsel, according to the firm.

“We are honored to have Mayor Fenty join us,” Bruce J. Klores, founding partner of Klores Perry Mitchell, said in a press release. “His successful Mayoral ‘reformer approach’ used to streamline the D.C. government and make it more responsive to residents will be a great asset to the firm. This innovative approach to law, combined with his strategic thinking and sound business judgment, will compliment the firm’s focus on efficiency and attention to client needs.”

DC Vote Keeps The Pressure On With Protest On Capitol Hill

 

This event comes to us from Leah Ramsay of DCVote:

DC residents will continue to keep pressure on their congressional allies, particularly Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and challenge their opponents to free DC's local budget from congressional interference. 

Thursday morning after the protest, the House Subcommittee On Oversight and Government Reform will hold an unorthodox hearing on the "fiscal sustainability" of DC's local budget, though it has been balanced for 13 consecutive years.
