Are You Dallas's New Graffiti Czar?
No? Shame. No matter: He or she will be named tomorrow! From the city, this just in:
Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert will announce a new initiative to fight graffiti in Dallas at the Wednesday, December 15th City Council briefing. He, along with District 1 Councilmember Delia Jasso will discuss the new push and name a new Graffiti Czar who will lead the effort.
This will occur at 1:30 when the Council returns from its lunch break.
At that time, the Council will vote on accepting a $100,000 contribution from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Cuban made that contribution to the City in September. It has been earmarked for graffiti abatement.
