Over at DISD, Supt. Michael Hinojosa made a $64 million mistake with his budget, and the DMN is leading the lynch-mob to get his job.
At city hall, Mayor Tom Leppert decided — pretty much on his own — to spend an additional $250 million or so on a convention center hotel, and instead of demanding that Leppert be recalled, the DMN and city council praised his leadership.
What's going on here? We're about to find out, thanks to a pending referendum campaign against the hotel and some interesting comments Leppert made to the Real Estate Council that were recently reported by the DMN's Dave Levinthal. Given Leppert's autocratic governing style and his apparently bloated hat size, his comments say a lot about what he thinks of the rest of us.
