In the wake of the conviction of former Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill and Planning Commissioner D’Angelo Lee in the housing tax credit corruption trial, Dallas Morning News reporter Rudolph Bush writes in his City Hall Blog today…
The alleged fraud revolved around minority contracting requirements and community housing development corporations. But so far, there has been precious little talk about those changing how those work at City Hall. Will that change?
Bush notes there is lots of talk about ethics reform at Dallas City Hall in the wake of the corruption convictions.
Surely some of the reform must come from within the CDC community and from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs that administers the housing tax credit program. But so far, unlike Dallas City Hall, there is little discussion of reform coming from these other circles.
