Mayor Caraway: "It's Time to Move On."
State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway, Dwaine and Dave Neumann at Dallas City Hall
Below, of course, you can listen to Mayor Dwaine Caraway's account of what happened between him and his wife on the night of January 2, per a recording made by Dallas Police after Chief David Brown sent officers -- including Deputy Chief Craig Miller -- to his and state Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway's house. Chris Heinbaugh, in the mayor's office, just sent this statement from Caraway himself:
I have contended from the start that the recording contains deeply personal and private information. There is no public interest in this information, and I have made every effort to protect my family's privacy. But I respect the ruling of the court, and it's time to move on.
This morning, I assembled top City staff and asked them to join me in focusing on the important issues in front of our city -- reducing crime, attracting jobs and businesses, getting through another tough budget year and moving Dallas forward.
I will not be discussing this issue further.
