   10/17/07  - Trinity Project

I
heartily endorse your DMN op-ed

Like many Dallasites, I was originally neutral on this issue.  The more I listen to the stridency of certain pols, vested interests, and read The Dallas Morning News on this subject the more I became convinced that we would be short-changing the future by including a tollway in the Trinity River Project.
 
We have two chances to make our City stand out -- The Arts District and the Trinity River Project.  The Arts District is being ruined by an insider deal on the property next to the Nasher gardens where the developers plan to build a 40+ story tower that will divide and destroy the ambiance of the area.
 
Regarding the Trinity tollway, my friends and I have written a number of "Letters" to the DMN none of which have been published.  The DMN is certainly biased and trying to shape opinion on this matter.  Only articles like yours are published when they are written by organized supporters of a "yes" vote.  Average citizen responses are not published unless they are for a "no" vote.  So it makes it look like you're the parallel to the pols with your own agenda. 
 
Please keep up your media blitz on the subject as I sense that our citizenry is not as pliant, nor as stupid as Mayor Leppert assumes

Editor's comments:  Actually the DMN contacted me directly for an op-ed.  They requested 4 others from the Trinity Vote Yes!. 

 

                                        

    





                            

 

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
