The Adrian Fenty show is hitting the road on a permanent basis, with the former mayor taking his message of education reform to audiences across the country.
Just two days after handing the city’s seal over to Mayor Vince Gray, Fenty has himself a new job, signed as the latest member of Greater Talent Network’s speaker bureau.
When Fenty lost to Gray, he quickly sat down for a series of high-profile national interviews. In each, he pitched himself as the victim of a relentless teachers union angered over the education reforms he had fought so hard for. (The national media never caught wind that Fenty lost largely because many people in the city thought he was a “jerk.”)
Now, for an undisclosed fee, anyone in the country can hear the former mayor spread the education reform gospel. See for youself on his GTN profile found here.
