Adios, César Chávez. For Now, Anyway.
Rather than post more docs today, here's the text of the letter to Mayor Tom Leppert, City Manager Mary Suhm and other city officials:
Dear Council Colleagues: As you all know, the process of finding a way to honor the late Hispanic leader Cesar Chavez has been underway for well over a year now. Unfortunately, one option considering Young Street was released prematurely. In fact, we are continuing to consider and evaluate options.And here's the note to O'Donnell:
In order to ensure that we all have an informed conversation on all of the options available to us, I am withdrawing the petition filed last week and requesting that the notification signs be removed from Young Street.
Over the next few weeks, we will continue vetting several options so that we may have a proposal that Dallas can be proud of.
Dear Ms. O'Donnell:
I am formally withdrawing the request submitted last week regarding a proposed name change for Young Street.
I request that the notification signs be removed as well.
Thank you for your assistance in this.
