Gray and President Obama discussed funding for infrastructure for Ward 8, D.C. license plates, the city's high unemployment rate, and voting rights.
'I'm unequivocally in support of voting rights for the District of Columbia", Obama told Gray.
The District faces a $188 million gap in the Fiscal Year 2011 operating budget.
Gray expects to have future meetings with the president.
On meeting with General Powell the president explained, "Most of the discussion we had was around national security issues. We talked about some of the challenges across the landscape, from North Korea to Iran to Afghanistan. But we spent, in particular, a lot of time talking about the START treaty."
