D.C. Mayor Vince Gray spent two evenings this week with Ward 3 residents, an area where he was badly beaten by former Mayor Adrian Fenty in September's Democratic primary.

On Tuesday night, Gray held an invitation-only  "informal meet-and-greet with Ward 3 residents" to discuss his education plans. On Thursday night, Gray again traveled to Stoddert Elementary School and Recreation Center in the wealthy ward in upper Northwest. He was joined by Ward 3 Councilwoman Mary Cheh, who endorsed Gray just weeks before the primary vote.

After winning in September, Gray set out on town hall tour of the city's eight wards. Part of his focus, he said, was to inform those who voted against of him of his plans for the city and encourage them to join in his effort to build "One City."

It seems Gray hasn't given up on his self-imposed mission.
