    In a article about retiring city manager Glassock, he made two comments. Accusing the homeowner’s (anti apartment) groups want to go “back to something else”. Of course he is playing the race card like most liberal leftist Democrats. He also stated “they don’t choose to be factual”. Mr Glassock all you need to do is drive your car to see the traffic problems. Drain the Plano Swamp. MAGA
