I keep reading this mess on the Blog about Obama. Obama is the one. No matter how you see it or hear it. Any Black man or woman who say they can not support Obama is either a crook or brain dead. I said and fight goes with it.
I miss my friends Lynn and Rufus Shaw. I miss reading Rufus ,so I could disagree with him on the blog.I miss Lynn because of her french Ebonics and always cheerful voice and knowledge of what was going on in a different arena then I.When I think of them which is daily, Councilwoman Burton of Duncanville message explains it all.
Councilwoman Dorothy Burton of Duncanville wrote a powerful message last week in the DMN 5/16/08 on "Why elected leaders fall" it is so true and also applies to appointed leaders and volunteer leaders. The message is how people in the public go about their day's in pain, trouble,and suffering ,yet they try and keep up that public appearance. We must stop and realize that we need not be perfect but always honest. We need to have someone we confide in about our problems. We need to step down or take a leave if the trouble will effect our duties.
Councilwoman Burton is a christian woman who I worked with a Dallas County. She had issues and so did I, but we never lost sight of what our mission was and that was to serve the Citizen of Dallas County not ourselves. We got in trouble with our Bosses but we were always on the side of the Taxpayer. I am so proud of her and the job she is doing for her Community and Dallas County.
If you are in a Leadership position trust someone to talk with, stop living above your means. Drive a KIA Petis Norman and I drive one. Stop spending money trying to keep up with the Jones the Jones are broke too!
I hope that Dr. Michael Hinojosa will not end as other Superintendent's of the DISD.
He has successfully given the business community 1.3 billion dollars to work with . The largest bond project in America. The amount will help them survive the high gas prices and keep them working for the next five years. In the mean time the continued problems in the DISD ,will make them force him out. I will be willing to bet you right now, their is a group looking for a job for him that he will be happy with and can stay in Dallas. They tried to help Terrell Bolton with employment but he had to be a Chief! The people who run this City really need to change their method of operations ,they are becoming an easy read for me. All of a sudden the people who do not live in Dallas, kid's and grand kids in private school want to help the 80% minority school district with 1.3 billion dollars. If it did not effect lives it would be funny. How can people think the Taxpayers are just down right crazy. We look at CSI and other mystery movies, not to figure them out.
