MCEO Leppert spins CD and politics on Lower Greenville

The first appearance on Lower Greenville for Mayor Tom Leppert was billed as a music event extraordinaire. Well, at least that's what the Dallas Observer promised us...

Rather, it was a very professional group of Young Democrats getting some facetime with Hiz Honor on such topics as the convention hotel, the Trinity River development, the stimulus package and city services.

It's not like Mr. Leppert does not have a sense of humor. When the group's leader asked for questions, he made a point that YDO members - who are all under 40 - would have the first round of questions.

The Mayor stood up, wiped his brow, and said, I thought he meant that you had to be under 40 to answer the question.
