I am proud of all the people that rolled with the punches and worked so hard to make this possible. When we were outspent 6-1, and the early vote was almost even I knew we would win. In a lot of places, especially southern Dallas, you could see that Vote Yes had the money but no idea how to effectively spend and appropriate dollars in a political campaign.
I was especially proud of Jerry Allen, who won his District 10 council race by a sizable margin even though he was the victim of a hit job by one of Dallas' weekly papers which was picked up by Vote Yes. For the entire campaign said paper and Vote Yes seemed to be the same organization. I was glad to help Jerry in certain neighborhoods, and that his constituents could see through the smokescreens.
There are two runoffs in June, so it will be another month before we learn who will be on the 2009-2011 City Council.
