Ensler: One city, one campus

Hatchet columnist Phillip Ensler notes how Vincent Gray can look to GW while trying to carry out his campaign vision of “One City” for D.C.

Now that Vincent Gray won the Washington, D.C., Democratic mayoral primary – making him the District’s presumptive mayor come January – the question or challenge is how will he turn his campaign promise of “One City” into a governing reality?

Gray, ever aware of the socioeconomic and racial tensions in D.C., made overcoming such divisions the focal point of the election. The election seemed to be a referendum on whether residents wanted to continue moving in the direction of gentrification and class warfare under the Fenty administration, or if they wanted the community-oriented progress and inclusion offered by Gray.
