Realtor “‘sees the light’
Thank you, Dallas. You have helped me see the light regarding this important issue with Perry Homes. I was wrong to say that I would not inform a client about Mr. Perry’s personal political check writing (“Homebuilder’s contributions raise concerns,” Dallas Voice, Jan. 12).
As a Realtor, my professional ethics have directed me to put my client’s interests first, but no longer will I separate my personal beliefs and politics from my client’s needs when it comes to issues like this.
I have spent over 16 years fighting for our equal rights and raising money for many GLBT organizations, so I will continue this fight by personally attempting to get Perry Homes to give back to our community. Again, my thanks.
We welcome letters from readers. Shorter letters are more likely to be printed, as are those that address only a single topic. On some weeks we receive more letters than we can print. In that case, we print a representative sample. Letters are subject to editing for length and clarity, but we attempt to maintain the writer’s substance and tone. Include your home address and a daytime phone number for verification. Send letters to the senior editor, preferably by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Letters also may be faxed (214-969-7271) or mailed (Dallas Voice, 4145 Travis St., Third Floor, Dallas, TX 72504).
