On Sunday, October 3, at 2 pm, the Dallas Area Interfaith is holding an "Accountability Session" with Martin Frost
, Pete Sessions, and other civic leaders, such DISD superintendent Groppel and Police Chief David Kunkle. It is not a debate, but an opportunity for citizens to speak and communicate their concerns about very specific problems and issues: Education, health care, safe schools, and safe neighborhoods.
But Pete Sessions is not interested in listening to citizens, to their concerns, priorities, and opinions.
When I asked one of the people helping organize it why he would not attend, she said that he said that the debates were enough
. I guess accountability is clearly something Sessions wants no part of. Here is an organization of people from different religions and faiths who want to come together for solutions to common problems. There's little to say about Sessions's aversion to listening to people, except help Martin Frost
. He's not afraid to listen to his consituents.
The DAI is a community organization of more than 60 area churches and synagogues in Dallas and surrounding cities.
Also, you can read an interview with Martin Frost this Tuesday on Texas Tuesdays, as well as contribute to his campaign and that of other Texas Democrats.
