On Saturday  June 13th, Delia Jasso won in a runoff election to replace Dr. Elba Garcia as the Council Member for District 1.  That brings this election cycle to a close.  Ms. Jasso will join Dave Neumann, winner from District 3, in representing North Oak Cliff.  We congratulate both of them on their wins and their committent to Oak Cliff, its people and its neighborhoods.

Oak Cliff was very lucky this election season to have had so many concerned citizens that were willing to put their lives on hold and run for public office.  The area is fortunate to have so many passionate individuals that care.

Oak Cliff is also lucky to have had such a strong advocate as Dr. Elba Garcia.  She has been a leader for all of the people of North Oak Cliff with an open door policy for everyone and her presence at City Hall will be missed.

In the summer of 2008, Mayor Leppert and Council-member Tennel Atkins organized the "Mayor's Southern Dallas Task Force" to spur development south of the Trinity.  The Task Force divided Southern Dallas into 10 sub geographical areas primarily located south of Interstate 30.  The first meeting of the Task Force was on August 21, 2008.  League member Darryl Baker and OOCCL President Michael Amonett are participating committee members of the Task Force for Area 5.  Committees have been meeting regularly for eight months now.
