Bottom line . . . Ron Kirk was probably the best Mayor that Dallas had ever had. He wasn't perfect, but letís look at what he did:
1.) Renovated Fair Park . . . It's still old, be he repainted the buildings, and re-goldflaked that eagle on that tower (or something) and made it look 10 times better. Even my dad, who grew up in Lakewood near fair park, said it hadn't looked that good since he was a kid.
2.) Put in a pretty good bid for the Olympics . . . sure it didn't compete with the other cities, but considering the way the City of Dallas works now, it was a gold mine.
3.) Built a New Arena in Downtown Dallas.
4.) Deep Ellum was cleaned up and actually really nice.
5.) Got the wheels going on the Trinity River Project . . . Laura Miller has since yanked the Emergency Brake on that one.
All I know is, I left for College Station in 2001, and Dallas was striving pretty well . . . Since I've been back, Laura Miller and the Corrupt City Counsel have put this city back into the dumps that it was in the 1980's.
