08/19/04  Beautification Tax?  Give me a tax break instead!

The Dallas City Council is totally out of touch with reality.

Oak Lawn is a waste land for renters.  They can take their pick and name their price.  I have had to lower rents to keep what few tenants I do have.

rankly, I don't give a darn about the parks.  I want regular people back in Oak Lawn.  Not everyone can afford a million $$$ townhome, Ms. Lill. 

Side note:  The store room in my Oak Lawn apartment complex was broken into --everything stolen.  How did they enter? 

They used  a new method.  They tore the wall out and walked through the wall.  Did the police come?  No.  They issued a report number. 

Not only was my store room robbed and no police came, but I received a citation for a loose rail (which was 'written up' incorrectly for the wrong side of the building).  No matter.  I still have to go to court and plead my case. 

All that, not withstanding the fact that my apartments are the only property in that block with parking-lot lights burning --- the only building with lights burning in the last 30 years.  Still, I get the citation. 

Thieves do not bother the dark lots---nothing to steal. 

Come on Laura Miller------enough is enough!

  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
