While many of us were on vacation, LSR Managing Editor William Lutz made an appearence on WFAA's Inside Texas Politics Sept. 5. Lutz slammed seven of the 15 Dallas City Council members for trying to renew on a no-bid basis concession contracts at Love Field Airport. He also praised the mayor and council majority for insisting on competitive bidding. These contracts are currently held by an ownership group that includes several prominent South Dallas camapign donors and politicians. Basically, the point he made is that any time someone proposes clean government for Dallas, out comes the race card. But civil rights groups used to support competitive bidding because it proves everyone got fair treatment.
We post the entire program below. Lutz's commentary begins with about 7:30 remining in the program.
Inside Texas Politics airs every Sunday at 9 am on WFAA, Channel 8 in North Texas. The archived video is available at www.wfaa.com/politics.
