    660 talk show host Mark Davis show had a caller discuss the Plano city council controversy 5/1/19. Something about the Mayor using the intern program to support his candidates. A few weeks ago someone knocked on my door and the first question was how was the mayor doing. I told him that the mayor was not running. It is clear plano’s mayor uses the same typical Democrat tactics. We are all racist because we don’t want high density housing, (see Dec 2018 D magazine plano article). Out going city manager using same rhetoric. When you can’t convince with logic then call them names. The homeowners in plano still contribute the most money into city budget. Drain the plano swamp.
