The election of Dallas mayor and city council today (Saturday, May 9) is overshadowed by the charges leveled against District 1 Councilman Scott Griggs, who ran unopposed for a third term. Griggs has been a steadfast ally of the LGBT community.
One of the city emails Councilman Scott Griggs received that raised the ire of some at Dallas City Hall pushing the Trinity Tollway plan. Griggs’ attorney Larry Friendman charged that the investigation is a result of his finding design flaws that could make the “Dream Team” proposal, passed in April by Dallas City Council, dangerous.
Dozens of people, including representatives from the city of Dallas and Dallas County showed up Saturday morning to support the opening of Out of the Closet, AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s new thrift store on Cedar Spring Road.
