Caraway Talks to WFAA About Being Mayor

Categories: City Hall

Tom Leppert writes in his official letter of resignation sent to the city council that he will officially step down as mayor at 11:59 p.m. tomorrow. At which point Dwaine Caraway will become the interim mayor of Dallas, and no one's more excited about that than Schutze, as you'll see shortly. But early this morning, the present pro tem went on WFAA-Channel 8 to talk about what we can expect during his brief but no doubt glorious reign. Of course, much of the interview dealt with the "negative, dark clouds" (in Cynthia Izaguirre's words) and controversies that have followed him in recent months.

Like Whitney Houston, Dwaine believes the children are our future. So therefore he will be a great mayor. Or something like that.

I don't see so well, did he suddenly lose his Robert Mugabe-style lip hair?

Did anyone else feel their property values just hit rock bottom?

You have to admire Leppert's genius for flipping the bird at Dallasites. Is this some sort of revenge, Tom? Do you hate us that much? What did we ever do to you?

Is it just me or were all those close-up shots of the key extremely annoying and unnecessary?

Nah - the election is in May and it's a lame duck-ish council session until then. He won't be in charge long enough to tank anything.

Us? When did Tom ever care about us? It's about him and his country club pals. We're just the chattel that needs to be herded for votes.

As soon as he "redeems himself"
