Wait, What Did Betty Culbreath Just Say? (Or Not Say?)

Before she takes this item down, we thought we would direct you to the blog of Betty Culbreath, the chair of the City Plan Commission, to which she was appointed by Mayor Laura Miller. She has some thoughts regarding the city's closing down of the Ash Creek Mobile Home Park, which we mentioned here yesterday. Specifically, she damns council member Leo Chaney for not doing anything to save the 60-plus-year-old park, from which some 100 residents will be displaced at the beginning of February. She writes, "Leo Chaney allowed the City Attorney -- in fact he encouraged the City Attorney -- to file criminal charges on the Owner." But that's not all:

"We need a revolution in Dallas. Elected Officials who can use their Power to move people from their homes with no remorse should be - - - -."

We have no idea what that last word is, but we could make some educated guesses. --Robert Wilonsky
