Leppert "Always Enjoyed" Jennifer Gale

Earlier today, we posted the comment from former mayoral candidate (and current candidate for Dallas County judge) Sam Coats regarding the death of Jennifer Gale. Gale didn't do as well as Coats in the 2007 battle for Dallas mayor, but she was able to finish ahead of John Cappello and Edward Okpa. The guy who finished first, Tom Leppert, offered the following statement to Unfair Park. --Sam Merten

"Jennifer was always a very nice person. She was very polite, very engaging. While you could argue with some of her positions, she was very passionate about what she believed in. I always enjoyed her."
