"I was surprised a little bit by Senator Hutchison's involvement, because she's been such a vocal opponent of toll roads," Hunt tells Unfair Park today. "I'm not a fan of them myself, and I've respected her position on the issue, and it surprises she would asisst the city on moving foeward with a project that's in the red by a billion dollars. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I think its irresponsible, and it's really weighing on me. It's all I've been thinking about the last two days, and it's unconscionable to me we'd have the mayor expediting the approval of safety standards just so he can meet his political deadline he set for himself of 2014. Anyone watching the [toll road] debate knew it would be unrealistic."
Hunt's missive, also sent to Hutchison and Dallas's Congressional delegation, follows in full.
