Time and Place Set for Second Buff and Scrub Meeting

Last Sunday, the Post brought you the story of Mayor Fenty's struggles to keep city business leaders on board his school reform bus. A key example focused on a meeting the administration held to sign up developers for the school system's summer buff and scrub program, designed to spruce up school buildings. During the informational session April 25 at the John A. Wilson Building, turnout was disappointing compared to the backed room last year.

Now the Fenty administration has announced a follow-up meeting June 4 at the Warner Building at 1299 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. No explanation from the mayor's office as to why they're getting out of the Wilson Building, but we're guessing the administration might want to put the hard sell on the developers in a more private setting.
