Trinity Petition Victory For Democracy in Dallas

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Monday, July 30, 2007

The certification of the Trinity River Vote initiative by the Dallas City Secretary is a big win for for democratic participation of voters in Dallas. Not only was the petition drive a great success for the grassroots effort undertaken against great odds and powerful interests, but it establishes a clear call for voters to decide what they value most.

The African American community of Dallas might be a potential source of victory or defeat for the planned toll road inside the Trinity River Levees.

More is at stake than the utility of a road or the beauty of a park.

The most important thing is the right of everyday citizens to make the decision.

And that is now a victory that has been rightfully won.


(DBB Note: A well deserved victory for Dallas City Council member Angela Hunt, the grassroots brigade and the citizens of Dallas, Texas.)
