Beep! Beep! Here Comes Mary’s Bus!

February 22, 2013


It has been announced that next week, embattled Dallas City Manager Mary Suhm will hold a briefing for the Dallas City Council in order to explain her role in the scandal that has rocked Dallas City Hall with Trinity East Energy. Some City Hall insiders have said that the odds makers are already wagering what staff member will get “thrown under the bus” by Suhm in order to protect her job.

In order for Suhm, she only needs to keep 6 City Council members happy. If she gets their votes to stay in her position, she stays. The most important aspect of this briefing next week, is that it is held in a public forum for anyone to attend.  Dallas City Hall credibility has already been lost in regards to the relationship between Trinity East Energy and City Hall.

The Mayor says he knows nothing, yet in public media statements, he contradicts himself by saying, “this deal was cut” and “There was some documentation that I can’t discuss.”

What else are we to think?

Tom Blanton, CEO of Trinity East Energy writes to the Dallas Planning Commission on February 7, 2013: This plan was developed in concert with, and with the support of, the Parks Department.

Dallas News Editorial writer Jim Mitchell wrote yesterday:



Next week, when the briefing is called to order, all Dallas citizens and the media need to hear exactly what happened when, and who agreed to do what for whom. But a word of warning to City Staff,  look out for the bus!

    It is absolutely essential that the briefings by Mary Suhm and Tom Perkins be held in a public forum for the sake of open and transparent city government. Considering that backroom deals were what got us in the mess in the first place, it is unthinkable that these briefings would be done in secret.

    It is time for Mary Suhm and Tom Perkins to be held publicly accountable for their roles in misleading the City Council and working behind the Council’s back to authorize what was not approved by the City Council.
