This morning D.C. Council Chairman, and mayoral candidate Vincent Gray will be touting his record on the issue of early childhood support.

Gray will serve as honorary chairman of a leadership summit hosted by the organization Pre-K for ALLDC.

Two years ago the Council passed a pre-K enhancement measure spearheaded by Gray. Once signed by incumbent Mayor Adrian Fenty, it expanded early education for 2,000 previously un-served 3 and 4 year olds in the city.

Pre-K for all D.C. supports universal pre-kindergarten in the district, and has placed a new focus on advocating for more programs targeting children from birth, to the age of three years old.
