DALLAS PROP 14: COMPASSION TRUMPS ECONOMICS Print E-mail

With 85% of the ballots counted in the Dallas city charter elections Prop 14 to allocate $23.8 million more for a downtown homeless shelter was winning with 59% of the vote. Downtown developers had thrown money into an effort to defeat the measure and force the City Council to find a new location away from their developments. Some Republican activists were also opposed on the basis of cost. In this contest compassion trumped economics. It is also a personal victory for civic leader and one-time Mayoral aspirant Tom Dunning. Dunning, who was defeated for Mayor by the incumbent, took on the thankless task of heading the Homeless Shelter Task Force at the request of his one-time foe. Always the good soldier and the thorough craftsman Dunning’s standing in the community was almost certainly the difference.
