Diana Flores Endorses Epker For City Council
DCCCD Trustee Diana Flores has endorsed Justin Epker for city council District 1 in the June 13 runoff. It's a nice pickup for Epker, and proof that his appeal is more than just to white voters. His opponent, Delia Jasso, is playing racial politics, claiming Latinos should vote only for Latinos. The truth is nearly 60% of voters chose anyone but Jasso in the May elections, and many Latinos, after hearing what he has to say, are voting for him. It's a fact Jasso's folks are trying to downplay. Just check out the reader forums at the Dallas Morning News website after any article about Epker.
