Says Mayor, Thanks to UNT Dallas Is Finally About to Become a College Town

UNT Dallas and the surrounding area from UNT Dallas on Vimeo.

That video above was just posted to Vimeo by the University of North Texas at Dallas -- but says here it was sent out a couple of weeks ago to "the Board of Regents, potential donors, the Texas legislature, and elected officials in Washington" as a way of touting the economic development sure to spring up 'round the UNTD campus within the next few years following the completion of major construction by year's end.

And when "economic development" is being touted, Mayor Tom's sure to follow. Sure enough, there he in the video -- which was shot at Texas A&M and Harvard, among other locations -- along with Lee Jackson and others insisting Dallas is about to turn into College Station or ... Boston.
