THUMBS DOWN Et Tu, Adlene?

By D Magazine |

Thumbs down to Adlene Harrison for threatening to lead an effort to kill DART. Harrison was a central figure in the creation of DART six years ago and was chairwoman of the DART board during its fat years when the entire twenty-five-member board took a trip to Europe to study transit, an $800,000 board room was built, and multimillion-dollar rail tunnels beneath North Central Expressway were planned. It is ironic that now Harrison wants to kill DART because, she says, the board is not “listening to anybody but themselves.” Who is Harrison listening to now? Herself only, or a few small, parochial groups who do not have the interests of Dallas at heart?
