The following is from an article in the Dallas Morning News (6-26-11).
Council member Joe Philipp said that he has high expectations for the new mayor and is confident she’ll be effective. He said they had already met to discuss their goals.
The staff of the CCR genuinely hopes that one of the goals discussed or mentioned was that Philipp would not feel compelled to discuss -- in his wishy-washy, both-sides-of-the-fence, extremely verbose utterances -- EVERY item on the council agenda before voting.
The voter’s message this last election was to stop talking about the problems associated with the voodoo financed $250 million Entertainment Center, McDougalville, tax and fee increases and start doing something about them.
It seems the only way to get Councilman Philipp’s attention on these matters is to either step in front of him when the TV camera is rolling, or start talking if he eventually pauses to catch his breath.
