Persistence pays for Fenty friend

Capital Land,Bill Myers

Some guy over at the Washington Business Journal has a piece on George Simpson, the running buddy to Mayor Adrian Fenty who has been put up for about three different city boards and rejected each time.

Simpson has finally secured himself a seat: He’ll serve on the National Capital Planning Commission, a post which doesn’t require council approval.

Still in limbo are Sean Gough and David Gragan, who — like Simpson — have been nominated to the board of the University of the District of Columbia.

“When asked about the qualifications of Simpson and Gough,” that Business guy writes, “Mafara Hobson, Fenty spokeswoman,

said she would provide a ‘redacted resume.’ It has not yet been received.”
