Mike the Loser, Dallas the Winner
With the denial of the Trinity East Energy leases recently, many in Dallas City Hall were not happy with the outcome. Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings came into the chambers that morning mad as hell. He already knew that he would most likely lose with a thin majority to approve the Trinity East Energy special use permits. In the afternoon session, his attitude got worse. When it came time for a vote, a much larger majority overruled Mike’s attempts to placate the gas industry and put Dallas residents in harm’s way. Dallas residents have wone every single time that the gas industry has tried to win on drilling inside Dallas city limits. Mike lost that vote, Dallas won, again. Currently, there are no gas lease applications at Dallas City Hall waiting for approval. The Dallas Planning Commission is almost finished writing a tougher gas ordinance and the gas industry is not happy either.

This is what Dallas missed out on having in their backyard. Thank god that the Mayor of Dallas lost that vote. Dallas residents won, again.
