Marvin Crenshaw, Dwaine Caraway and Sandra Crenshaw on the Fate of Dallas's Black Districts
But as Dwaine Caraway says in the clip above, the council will tweak the plan when it comes to the horseshoe after the August 23 meeting of the Redistricting Commission, its last. (If all things go according to plan.) We still have a long way to go, in other words; the fun's only begun. Which you'll note in the clip above from last night's meeting, in which several familiar faces -- Marvin Crenshaw (whose lawsuit with Roy Williams led to 14-1), Sandra Crenshaw and Caraway among them -- express their concerns about losing majority-black districts during this process. John Loza and Donna Halstead show up at the end, none too thrilled with where this discussion's going.
Update at 4:16 p.m.: Along with its invite to Saturday's public hearing, the city sends word that the three plans up for final review are now posted. They are: Plan 3, Plan 5 and Plan 16.
