Mayor Leppert and the Homeless – Under the Radar

I came across this post on The Intermittent Volunteer’s Weblog, which talks about our Mayor and his involvement with issues involving the homeless.

Note that the poster said there were no cameras or press; just an engaged Mayor giving some of his time to pitch in. Says Karen Shafer, the blog’s owner:

He could easily show up for a photo-op (no press were present at this event), he could stay behind the glass counter, he could come and go quickly and say he’d made ‘a stop.’ He doesn’t. For the third time since I’ve known him, he’s come out among the homeless, touched them, talked to them at length one to one, spent time with them as though he did not have pressing time concerns.

For those of us that know the Mayor, this is nothing new. We appreciate the Mayor’s efforts in making Dallas a better city, and it’s good that people notice the efforts.
