Mayor Mike's All Over C-SPAN2 Right Now
Rawlings just wrapped his brief remarks about Dallas and the workforce and the future; he'll be running the show for the next four hours, give or take. He intro'd his remarks by saying, "I don't know anything about government. I've been in this job for six months. I was elected mayor in June, and I've been a business executive for three decades. ... Everybody brings different viewpoints to their jobs. I bring the viewpoint of knowing how to run a business. ... I'm fascinated [by] folks who talk publicly about this whole issue and they're either focused on workforce or they're focused on business. There seems to be this dichotomy in America who you're rooting for, which is ridiculous, because you gotta have both."
Watch now. Laurie Bouillion Larrea, president of Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas, just took the mic, who just said: "Dallas is on the grow."
