Jolly Gray Giant vs. Smart Car

Kimberly Miller

Mayor Adrian Fenty loves D.C. traffic.

It’s not easy being green -- especially when you’re tall. Just ask Washington’s next mayor.

Vincent Gray says he probably won’t drive around in a fuel-efficient Smart Car like Mayor Fenty.

It’s not that Gray doesn’t care about the environment. It’s that he cares about leg room. The mayor-elect says he’s “very tall,” so fitting in the car could be a challenge.

Gray isn’t nixing all of Fenty’s traditions. He said he might keep the current mayor’s office arrangement, known affectionately as the “bullpen.” In that configuration, the mayor sits with his aides and agency heads instead of alone in an office.
