|Hello Council Representatives:
I hear from many citizens of Dallas asking for Arts District
upgrades, others for Animal Shelter/ Control upgrades, others for
improvement of the Dallas core districts. Honestly speaking, I hear from
NO ONE North of Hwy. 635 that wants more give always to the Victory
area. If a business wants to locate in the Victory area, let it
pay it's way like the rest of us do. My contacts include those in
the business and construction disciplines. Even they balk at this
give away scheme.
The vote at hand appears to be some form of "forced
issue" to provide more money to those who need it least. If
Dallas wants to give away $43,000,000, then let us spend it where it
will satisfy best the Citizens who live here. Taking away from the
core business districts certainly won't help Dallas grow. It will
bring more emptiness than already exists.
Rad Field, District 11
