Email I got today after emailing dallas city council and mayor.

Thank you for your comments. This is a statement the Mayor released to
the press -



"Through most of its recent history, the Dallas City Council has chosen
not to get into divisive debates or take positions on issues that do not
directly involve the city of Dallas. I believe that is a wise course to
follow. We are focused on bringing businesses, conventions and trade to
Dallas, continuing to improve public safety, tackle the budget
challenges without a tax hike and generally move the city forward. That
is what Dallas voters put us here to do and I believe that is where our
Council's energy should be focused."



-- Mayor Tom Leppert


Thank you,

Amanda Sanchez
Office of the Mayor
214.671.8257





In case you are wondering, I sent a very respectful email to the mayor of dallas and city council about the possible boycott of arizona. I agree 100% with what mayor Leppert said, however I don't think dallas city council really cares.

Good question, honestly I don't know really. They act as if they spend so much money in arizona. The concept I guess is for city workers ect. to not go to any conventions in arizona. Other than that (if they even do that) I have no clue.

For the same reason why Arizona spends money in dallas. Some companies go to conventions in other states. I know AZ happens to be a pretty big convention attraction as is Dallas.

Why should the city of Dallas, or any city for that matter, boycott Arizona? They should be getting a medal over there and other states should follow.

its fine for companies to do it, but why would the city need to send people to AZ and spend money there at the expense of tax payers?

I've been sent to training in AZ when I first came on with my City. I spent a week there learning how to program our DB system and learn the ropes of our phone system since the company who made it is based out of Chandler, AZ.

I would love to go back out for additional training...if we had any money ourselves.

you don't spend any money there... you don't travel there for tourism, you don't purchase goods or services from companies located in that state, etc. etc.

Arizona should be celebrated as a model state. It just shows the ignorance of those calling to boycott
