02/12/04  Weisfeld should resign.

As the plot thickens regarding the 'intake center' for the homeless vagrants in Dallas, it's now clear that the City doesn't even understand its own role in such a facility.  

What is the facility's main purpose and role for the homeless in Dallas?  Our representatives have admitted they don't know. 

This just shows our city is suffering from a complete lack of leadership, both from council members and the mayor.

The city council was ready to vote on a location without even knowing the mission of such a facility.  Apparently, the mayor didn't even know where the Harry Hines site is located because she told KLIF listeners last week that it was near Parkland.  It is over 4 miles from Parkland, which is halfway between the site and Downtown.

CBS 11's Sarah Dodds' report crystallizes the fact that Dallas is as crooked as a three dollar bill.  

In this instance, they were caught with their pants down by a good reporter.  John Loza's appointee, Herschel Weisfeld, should resign as vice chair of the city's Cultural Affairs Commission.  Resign, period.

Unless Mr. Weisfeld is forced to resign, Dallas taxpayers can expect the status quo from their city government.  Translation, no representation for taxpayers, only favors for council members appointees and friends of the mayor.

  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
