Thank You for Your Support

I am happy to announce that yesterday I won re-election to my fourth and final term on the Dallas City Council with 67% of the vote.  Thank you to everyone who went out and voted yesterday!

I’ve been humbled by the outpouring of support for my campaign.  From our wonderful volunteers who made phone calls night after night, walked door to door day after day, and greeted voters at the polls for the last two weeks (and you’ve got the sunburns to prove it!) — to the hundreds of people who endorsed me, put up yard signs, and made financial contributions — THANK YOU.  Your hard work and steadfast support paid off and I am deeply appreciative.

My campaign team was amazing and a pleasure to work with.  Thank you, Michelle, Murray, James, Eric, and Anna — you guys worked incredibly hard and you’re the best!

We had a great time last night at the wonderful victory party that Jeff Bryan and Elizabeth Polanco threw for us at their lovely home on Swiss Avenue.  Thank you, Jeff and Elizabeth!

Lastly, I received messages of congratulations from two of my opponents — Brian Oley and Vernon Franko — and I thank y

Dallas Sierra Club and Dallas Area Residents for Responsible Drilling Endorse Angela

I am proud to announce that I just received the endorsement of two important environmental groups here in Dallas! The Dallas Sierra Club and Dallas Area Residents for Responsible Drilling:

Known to many as probably the smartest member of the city council, she has continued to ask the right questions and taken stands where others were too nervous or watching the polling stats to do so.

…In the final analysis, we need more leaders in city hall like Angela Hunt who are willing to ask the hard, intelligent questions and not to be afraid of losing votes from the residents or financial support from those outside of their districts.

…We applaud her ‘no guts no glory’ approach to civic government and look forward to having her on the city council for another term.  [Read more…]

Many thanks to both Dallas Sierra Club and DARRD for their recognition of my commitment to our environment!

Dallas Morning News Enthusiastically Endorses Angela!

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!
