As an informed voter, you need to know where the candidates stand on the Trinity Tollway. As I've mentioned previously, this is the ridiculous plan to put a tollroad through in the downtown levees, which could cause life-threatening flooding to nearby residents. The following info comes from the DMN's coverage of the Mayor's race:
Move the road outside of the levees or reconsider the current plan: Sam Coats, Darrell Jordan, Don Hill, Roger Herrera, Gary Griffith
Move forward with the tollroad as planned, inside the levees: Ed Oakley, Tom Leppert, John Cappello.
I will have a real hard time supporting any candidate that supports moving forward which the tollroad as planned. Those candidates will have to answer the question of whether or not they are tools for the downtown real estate interests, or if they have the welfare of poor citizens in mind.
