    I was very disappointed that the Dallas Morning News chose not to endorse the person I deem most-qualified as the Democratic nominee for the tax assessor position. I am encouraged that many Dallas County voters agreed with me yesterday.

    Diana is the most-qualified person to take over a county tax office in dire need of some new ideas. Let's hope that we can get many folks to the polls on the runoff day.
