Attorney Marcos Ronquillo announced his plans to challenge Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings in the May 2015 municipal election Thursday.
Ronquillo says he wants to fix some of Dallas’ problems he says are now being ignored or overlooked by the current administration. For example, Rawling supports the Trinity Toll Road. The mayor says it will provide greater mobility but also access to parks. Ronquillo rejects the toll road.
“Why are we talking about an expensive tollroad that’s driving right through the Trinity River Park when we need to talk about public infrastructure that’ll strengthen neighborhoods, improve our schools and enhance the quality of life?” Ronquillo asked.
