Mike Rawlings Taps Captain America For Tomorrow's Official Campaign Kick-Off
As Sam pointed out in February 2007, when he covered Tom Leppert's mayoral campaign kick-off at St. Philip's School in South Dallas, Roger Staubach served as his campaign co-chair alongside Elaine Agather. But Staubach couldn't make it four years back; he was "not in attendance." He is expected at Dallas City Hall tomorrow, though, when Mike Rawlings officially announces that he's running for mayor: Meghan Fitzsimmons at Allyn Media sends word this afternoon that the Cowboys legend will join Rawlings in the Flag Room for "a very important campaign announcement."
Also on the invite list: Pettis Norman (ah, another ex-Cowboys great) and Dallas Citizens Council member Arcilia Acosta, whose construction company, says here, "is a current general member of several of the largest construction programs in Dallas/Fort Worth," including "as a general partner of the $1.3 billion DISD Bond Program." Ah. But who's Hollywood Henderson supporting?
