Two top D.C. officials add millions in assistance to their home ward

D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) and Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown (D), the city’s top two elected officials, have added provisions worth millions in economic development assistance to Ward 7 — their home ward — in the city budget the council passed Tuesday.

Brown added provisions that earmarked $6.5 million in development financing for the ward, including an $800,000 grant to the developer of an affordable-housing project already underway.
