Council candidate Pierce’s office broken into

Casie Pierce

The newly opened campaign office of Dallas City Council District 7 candidate Casie Pierce was broken into during the weekend.

The office, at 3312 North Buckner Blvd. #205, opened Friday. The break-in occurred Sunday, and the Pierce campaign was notified by the building supervisor on Monday morning.

“Our office had only been open for three days and something like this happens. We only had a desk and a couple of chairs inside, but my campaign manager’s laptop was taken,” Pierce said.

Pierce, a lesbian who’s challenging incumbent Carolyn Davis, was profiled in a March story in Dallas Voice.

Police were called at 10 a.m. on Sunday, and the report is pending.

“We are going to clean up, get the window repaired and get back to work on the campaign,” Pierce said.

The campaign will hold an open house on April 9.
