What Do You Think?

Here we go! Strong Mayor? No! Yes! I think I’ll stick with no, for now. How about ya’ll?

    I’m a Yes! Although I had to ever disagree with you Alan!

    It’s perfectly fine, Eva. I’m all grown-up now and can handle people disagreeing with me without binging on drugs and alcohol. At least I hope so. I’ll let you know.

    I was leaning toward yes, but I heard Laura Miller talking about the Blackwood/Strong Mayor plan on KERA this weekend. She turned me away from the Strong Mayor plan completely.

    Thanks for the input. I’m not trying to sway people one way or the other, just an informal survey, I guess. It’s not that I’m against a strong-mayor per se, I just don’t think this is the answer and it has nothing to do with how I feel about Laura Miller. Come on, Laura! I know you read this blog. Speak to us.

    Yes. We need a modern city structure where there’s somebody looking out for the whole city. I don’t like Miller that much, but this shouldn’t be about just Miller. Don’t throw out a good idea that should help Dallas for a generation just because you don’t like who’s in office for the next 4 years.

    Actually, my issues with the plan had nothing to do with the current mayor. In listening to her defend the Blackwood plan, none of her arguments were very compelling. She obviously feels passionately about this issue, but her defense of the plan was not convincing. If anything some of her arguments pushed me in the opposite direction.
