City Paper is not for tourists
Mayor Adrian Fenty‘s office has announced that a press conference will be held at the Columbia Heights metro stop this afternoon at 3:30.
The reason as stated in the press advisory is not a shocker. Fenty and Co. plan on using yesterday’s shooting to press for the controversial gang injunctions. According to the advisory: “The Fenty Administration and members of the D.C. Council will address the recent gun violence in Columbia Heights, and push for emergency enactment of a gang injunction.”
Fenty will be on hand along with AG Peter Nickles, Assistant Chief Diane Groomes, and Councilmembers Jack Evans, David Catania, Muriel Bowser, and Jim Graham.
The grandstanding and/or Grahamstanding ought to reach epic levels.
