Jamie I am in district 5 and have a mutual friend in Adam district 7. I saw this just a minute ago and have some thoughts to share. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/local/dallas-police-investigate-deadly-shooting-at-exxon-gas-station/287-42ece2a2-a4fe-4233-84d2-6246ff096366?fbclid=IwAR06rUr4TZGWCiq6R7-FXXntYvEcbtzPWTL9kEO9G5LwwLa441Z4eVx45TQ In this area there are several boarded up businesses that have remained dormant over a long period of time. This breeds crime and our city leaders must strive to ensure business growth in these areas. Buildings should be filled with occupants and not be allowed to remain dormant for long periods of time. Incentives to bring business as well as city planning to revitalize these neighborhoods is a much needed commodity IMO
Ed Turner, City of Dallas is live at the Council District 5 Town Hall Meeting talking about why the Census is so important in the wake of Covid.
THANK YOU and YOUR STAFF for keeping us informed about COVID-19. I have live in District 5 for 65-years and have never before experienced a City Councilman that actually took responsibility for his people and made any real effort to help his people. So, we (my household) are offering our thanks to you AND your staff for all your support and efforts.
