Today, The Dallas Morning News enthusiastically endorsed me for re-election!
The endorsement followed a lengthy (nearly two-hour), in-depth interview with the editorial board. The board interviewed all of the candidates together and peppered us with questions ranging from economic development to zoning to education.
The board concluded: “The challengers pale next to Hunt in their level of civic involvement, not to mention on their knowledge of zoning, redistricting and the major factors contributing to Dallas’ north-south gap. Well-rehearsed answers, chock-full of jargon and catch phrases, did nothing to persuade us that they would provide more effective leadership than Hunt.”
“There are times when this newspaper openly clashes with her point of view, but we always can rely on her to produce a well-researched and passionate defense of whatever stance she takes. The dynamic 39-year-old knows her stuff. And that’s a top reason why she deserves re-election to the District 14 seat….Hunt’s willingness to take on big challenges is an asset for her constituents and the city at large. Voters should return her for another term.”
My thanks to The Dallas Morning News editorial board for a terrific discussion of the important issues affecting District 14 and the City of Dallas!
