Rhee, Gray to Meet At Noon

By Rebecca Blatt

D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee and Democratic Mayoral Nominee Vincent Gray are expected to meet today for the first time since last week's primary.

Rhee and Council Chairman Vincent Gray are scheduled to meet at noon in Gray's office at the Wilson Building. The question at hand is one that has prompted speculation across the country: will Rhee continue to serve as chancellor if Gray becomes mayor? He is expected to win the general election because most voters in the city are registered Democrats and there aren't any Republican candidates in the race.

Gray has not said whether he would like to keep Rhee as Chancellor, and he has repeatedly said he would not announce personnel decisions until after the general election in November. Rhee has not said whether she would like to continue in the job.
