DFW Regional Concerned Citizens and The Arlington Texan Endorse Terry Meza

Both Place 5 Arlington City Council candidates have track records and deep roots in the district. Better educated, Terry Meza has multiple degrees in Law, Education and Urban Affairs while Mrs. Wolff, who has served 6 years as Councilwoman, completed one year of college. Meza's record spearheading community revitalization in historic neighborhoods in Fort Worth and Midland, makes her a good fit for this district which desperately need her skill in job creation, business development and neighborhood revitalization. Councilwoman Wolff’s is named in a lawsuit seeking payment of a judgment from a 1990 bankruptcy filed by her and her husband listing debts of $97,510,536.38. Her description of it in the League of Women Voters Candidate's Survey as “One frivolous lawsuit not followed-up..” and the staggering amount of the unsecured debt concerns us.

Wolff lists some Meza supporters as endorsers! In addition to those mentioned in a Fort Worth Star Telegram article, at least one member of our organization, a Meza volunteer and donor, was surprised to see his name on Mrs. Wolff's list of endorsers.

Mrs. Wolff is proud of the investment in infrastructure in the district. The district, which runs from Pantego to the Grand Prairie City Limits through central Arlington, contains neighborhoods ranging from upper middle income to lower income. The majority of the investment in infrastructure has been concentrated west of Collins Street while east Arlington continues to be neglected. Terry Meza will champion the neglected area of the district while supporting development throughout the district.

Until Councilwoman Wolff clears up her family legal and financial problems, we recommend that District 5 voters elect Terry Meza to the Arlington City Council.

DFW Regional Concerned Citizens attempts to examine issues from all directions. When a story says "By Faith Chatham" it contains my viewpoint.
