It’s Official: Mayor Gray Seeks Re-election
Mayor Vincent Gray made it official Dec. 2: He will seek re-election as Mayor of the District of Columbia. Gray signed forms at the Board of Elections and picked up papers to be signed by at least 2,000 registered voters for the April 1 Democratic Party primary.
In a Dec. 2 letter to supporters, Gray wrote: “We are better off today than we were just three years ago. . . . I am running for re-election to build on the progress and achievements of our first term. We are accomplishing what we set out to do. Step by step, we are moving our city forward. We have built strong foundations. But our work is not done.
“We will formally launch ‘Gray 2014’ next year. This is not the season when people want to hear from politicians. Now is the time for family, friends and celebration. ”
