Marvin Crenshaw, Dwaine Caraway and Sandra Crenshaw on the Fate of Dallas's Black Districts
Anna's gotten to know the city awfully well in a very short amount of time -- that's whatsitting through every single redistricting meeting
will do to and for you. And she was there forfour hours
last night, even though she's got a cover story due, like, now. And she'll be there all day Saturday, during the public hearings at City Hall scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Me, I just catch up when I can -- and probably should be paying more attention given the various plans that seem hellbent on moving my neighborhood out of District 13.
But as Dwaine Caraway says in the clip above, the council will tweak the plan when it comes to the horseshoe after the August 23 meeting of the Redistricting Commission, its last. (If all things go according to plan.) We still have a long way to go, in other words; the fun's only begun. Which you'll note in the clip above from last night's meeting, in which several familiar faces -- Marvin Crenshaw (whose lawsuit with Roy Williams led to 14-1), Sandra Crenshaw and Caraway among them -- express their concerns about losing majority-black districts during this process. John Loza and Donna Halstead show up at the end, none too thrilled with where this discussion's going.
