What amazing morphology Trinity River Vision and Fort Worth’s Crime Control and Prevention District have experienced, going from flood control and hard crime fighting equipment to economic development and after-school programs!

If Chuck Silcox were alive today, this would do him in.

I have heard all the more about local schools (which are controlled by the school districts, not the City Council), urban villages and public art.

No one has spoken about the must-do-first safety and security needs.

As a public health doctor, I wish someone would address the importance of faith-based, nuclear families or the horrible problems of infection/death caused by our medical facilities and the low ratings they’ve received or the awful stats of infant morbidity/mortality in our African-American community for the last 20 years.

Fortunately, our Hispanic community does not yet have that degree of newborn problems. What an education the council selectee will have!
