Ed Oakley Sells out City for Tollroad

A compadre of mine (RobertB) on the DFW Urban Forum has alerted us to an interesting e-mail from a familiar tollroad cheerleader who happens to be running for mayor.

Ed Oakley just sent me an email saying — and I can’t believe this is a quote:

“But, like any good leader Ed Oakley is unwilling to be carried away simply by parks and recreational spaces. He knows there are other responsibilities involved here.”

God forbid we should be “carried away simply by parks and recreational spaces”! Oddly enough, the page on his site that he links to has nothing but renderings of… parks and recreational spaces.

You can go to Oakley’s website if you feel like it and see his “vision.” You can also see the picture of the tollway right on the levee. To wit, we say, it ain’t gonna happen.
