Celebrate Freedom!

This past week, the U.S. Senate officially established June 19th as Juneteenth National Independence Day, a move that was long overdue. Although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by Abraham Lincoln and became effective on January 1, 1863, as the most remote slave state Texans weren’t informed until more than two years later, on June 19, 1865.

On that date, General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston and read from the Proclamation:

“The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves.”

Let us all pause today to remember this historical moment in Texas and U.S. History. As we celebrate the end of slavery so many years ago, let us also remain committed to achieving equity for all.

~Ñ~

¡Celebre la Libertad!

La semana pasada, el Senado de los Estados Unidos estableció oficialmente el 19 de junio como el Día de la Independencia Nacional y libertad, una medida que se necesitaba desde hace mucho tiempo. Aunque la Proclamación de Emancipación fue firmada por Abraham Lincoln y entró en vigencia el 1 de enero de 1863, ya que los tejanos del estado esclavista más remoto no fueron informados hasta más de dos años después, el 19 de junio de 1865.

En esa fecha, el general Gordon Granger llegó a Galveston y leyó de la Proclamación:

“Se informa al pueblo de Texas que, de acuerdo con una proclama del Ejecutivo de los Estados Unidos, todos los esclavos son libres. Esto implica una igualdad absoluta de derechos personales y derechos de propiedad entre antiguos amos y esclavos ”.

Hagamos una pausa hoy para recordar este momento histórico en Texas y la historia de los Estados Unidos. Mientras celebramos el fin de la esclavitud hace tantos años, mantengamos también nuestro compromiso de lograr la equidad para todos.

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.
