WASHINGTON -

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray ticked off a litany of successes Tuesday night in his third annual State of the District address.

He delivered the speech at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, arriving to the chants of protesters outside upset about the closing of 15 city schools.

Inside, the reception was warmer. Gray told the audience crime is down, along with unemployment, and he bragged about unprecedented development in the city.

On the touchy issue of ethics, Gray called for procurement reform of contracting practices, even as he remains under the cloud of a federal investigation that has seen three of his election campaign workers plead guilty to campaign corruption.
