Live from City Hall

The first speaker against the plan was Neil Emmons, a plan commissioner. He was representing Cay Kolb, a former city planning commissioner and former DART board member. She could not attend the meeting today, Emmons told the council, because she is tending to her husband in an intensive care unit--and not taking him off life support, as Emmons mistakenly told the council--but she had enough time to write a letter to the council in which she said: "Never...have I witnessed anything as fraudulent or underhanded as this ForwardDallas! comprehensive planning process. The public input has been supressed; the staff has funneled a foregone conclusion upon which they are asking you to vote today. Please take a deep breath and do not be sucked into this fraud."

And things are just beginning. Oh, and by the way, still no mayor.
