WASHINGTON | Washington’s next mayor says he likely won’t continue the current mayor’s practice of driving around in a fuel-efficient Smart Car.

Mayor elect Vince Gray said Wednesday during a news conference to announce his transition team that he was “very tall” so it would be hard to drive a Smart Car as current mayor Adrian Fenty does.

Gray was asked whether he would keep Fenty’s “bullpen,” an arrangement of the mayor’s office where Fenty sat with aides and agency heads instead of an isolated office. Gray responded by saying that his administration would have its own way of conducting business.

He said a bullpen might work but that a Smart Car probably wouldn’t.
