Wick Allison Pulls Himself Out of the River, Ctd.

By  |

As Tim noted, Wick weighed in on the convention hotel argument in the DMN this morning. So did Mayor Tom Leppert. Two things about the mayor’s take are interesting. As suspected here awhile ago, he’s using the minor-league baseball park plan–which literally has been kicking around for years–to bolster the pro-hotel side. And he rips hotel foe Harlan Crow for residing not in Dallas, but in Highland Park. However, that’s sort of a dangerous slippery slope for the mayor. As we discovered reporting an April story on DCVB honcho Phillip J. Jones, Leppert’s top Dallas convention and tourism guy lives in … drumroll, please … the city of Southlake.
